If I remember correctly, it doesn't happen with the twinhan-exp branch.

I think there are two cases:
- the system has a phantastic uptime of more than 4-5 days ;)
When VDR refuses to zap between the channels, then I'll know the time
has come to power off
- switching between different/new releases of kernel and/or modules
After installing a new kernel, a simple reboot showed the boot messages
But with twinhan-exp the problems have disappeared!
