Can somebody "offical" from vdr confirm this patch (sorry, I don't know the 
who's-who there)?

Because only vdr output format is affected and I don't think people use that 
format for other purposes than vdr, I don't see any reason against applying 
it (the actual changes are vdr's beer, not mine :)
