Bug#258412: runvdr script does not correctly restart vdr on crashes

Package: vdr
Version: 1.2.6-4
Severity: important

When vdr crashes the runvdr script should first remove all modules and then 
reload them. Unfortunately the line 

modprobe dvb >/dev/null 2>&1

that is used does not work (at least on my system - kernel 2.6). IMHO all the 
modules that are removed (regarding) DVB should be reloaded (not a specifc 
module dvb that does not even exist). I therefore suggest to replace the line 
with the following:

for MODUL in $MODULES; do
  modprobe $MODUL >/dev/null 2>&1
