Package: vdr
Version: 1.4.7-1
Followup-For: Bug #326674


my vdr stopped working too. It began to restart 
every 10 seconds. 
I managed to bring it back to work by setting the 
option NONPTL to 0 in /etc/default/vdr. The 
problem was that 
/usr/lib/vdr/plugin-loader.sh set 
With the new glibc 2.5 this is no longer working.

I hope that this info helps.
