I'm seeing this strange problem that a select statement in the streamdev 
server is returning EBADF and then the streamdev server exits and refuse 
to accept more connections. This typically happens when trying to stream 
a specific channel. Trying to stream other channels does not exhibit 
this problem.

I can recompile code and try patches.

I've made simple and crude patch to make the streamdev server plugin a 
bit more fault tolerant. See attachment.

OS: FreeBSD-11-current
Driver: Wecamd (Same as what is in Linux 3.18)

BTW: Thank you for keeping VDR up to date!
