I wonder if I'm chasing a ghost there... am I really the only one
seeing this?  I can't get this index rebuilding to work regardless
if I try it with old or new recordings, if I mv away the original
index file that was created with a recording I always get totally
different index files rebuilt (checked with hexdump/cmp -l) that
cause playbacks (via xineliboutput) to look quite corrupted immediately
and make vdr-sxfe hang at eof too.

 This is vdr 1.7.17, xineliboutput is a 1.0.90s20110308.2305 checkout,
FreeBSD 8.2/amd64, using these ports:


(originally noticed with recordings from arte hd on 19.2E, but also
reproduced with new short sd recordings, even from dvb-t.)

 ..and before I forget, Thanx for vdr! :)
