[vdr] xineliboutput - pausing playback takes time

I found "fix" to this problem..  After removing .xine directory (from 
home of 'vdr'; user what runs vdr-sxfe) pausing works as it should be.. 
When vdr-sxfe starts, it created again that .xine directory.. But it 
(directory) stays empty.
After creating config_xineliboutput to that directory (file is empty; 
touch config_xineliboutput) problem returns, but not every time when you 
try to pause playback...
