Is this fix also relevant for the original VDR 1.7.0?

BTW: just curious, but what exactly is the reason for this "API wrapper"?
Shouldn't we rather encourage people to switch to the multiproto driver?
After all, I did release a stable version 1.6 for those who don't want to
(or can't) switch to the multiproto driver. Now we're at a new *developer*
version, which should *focus* on making the switch to multiproto.

Just my thoughts, no offense intended, and of course it's your decision
to maintain such a patch ;-)
