in config.h, in the function "bool Load()" at about line 123 (vdr 1.4.7) 
uncomment 2 lines:
                   else {
                      esyslog("ERROR: error in %s, line %d", fileName, line);
                      delete l;
                      //RC: we do not want to exit vdr just because of a 
simple error
                      //result = false;
this will cause vdr to go on starting even if an error accours in a config 
file and increase waf. ;)

cheers, Tim
