Both of your so far posted logs show this scenario:

This doesn't look like a vdr-xine issue.

But before investigating this further, you first need to fix your
system so that VDR can retrieve thread IDs. As the above log
reports -1 as thread ID it is almost impossible to tell, which
thread got stuck -- either the thread which does the recording or
the other which talks to xine.

Please tell a little bit about your system. I wonder how moving
to x86_64 could result in such mess. Some infos about my system:

Linux x86_64 [ openSUSE 11.2 ]

rpm -q gcc gcc44 glibc

A sample from my logs:
Jan 26 20:54:01 corei7 vdr: [7376] switching to channel 7
Jan 26 20:54:03 corei7 vdr: [7430] cVideoRepacker: switching to
MPEG1/2 mode
Jan 26 20:54:03 corei7 vdr: [7430] cVideoRepacker: operating in
MPEG1/2 mode

And a request for further debug information: please provide it in
a way that it doesn't get wrapped around. Wrapping makes it hard
to read. Simply attach it as plain text file if you cannot find
another way to achieve this.
