You're probably not going to find a developer willing to spend the
cycles to debug an ancient version of VDR on an ancient kernel. Your
best bet is to update to the latest version and see if the problem
still occurs. Fortunately it seems like the issue is highly
reproducible for you, so seeing if it occurs in the latest version
should be pretty straightforward.
So if you are looking to help debug the issue, answer your own
question: "Can you reproduce it with recent vdr and fbtv versions?"
