Hi Mauro.

I am absolutely sorry that it's been ages since my last mail regarding this 
patch but life intervened in every way possible actually... and still does. 
To make matters worse, we (luckily) switched to dvb-s, so I am unfortunately 
no longer able make further tests if time would permit. :-(

I have used this patch on my machine for weeks after my last post and haven't 
had any trouble with it. Still there seems to be a hard to hit race condition 
now which would need further testing. Nevertheless IMHO the patch is a real 
improvement to the situation because before one could frequently run into 
issues... and now things work just fine most of the time.

Best regards,
