I appologise for so long delay but I have not tested it yet.
First, we selebrated a birth day of my son. This took some time.
Second, my home system running NetBSD is very unstable (amd64),
I wrote about it in netbsd-users recently and the problem persists.
Just a few minutes ago it hanged up again. Believe it or not
I tried to reboot it but doesn't boot at all.
The kernel crashed with ddb prompt. Maybe this is a hardware issue,
I'm not sure.

So, I need some time to restore my system and some diagnostics.
Later (sunday) I'll try to reproduce the problem on my system at work
where I also use NetBSD (i386).

Alternatively, any developer can test Joerg's patch because
the problem is easily reproducible with, for example, mediatomb package.
