It is. VDR 1.4.x even used a dirty workaround to display the 5 minute
shutdown warning. (that is, calling signal(SIGALRM, SIG_IGN) before and
signal(SIGALRM, Watchdog) after displaying the message.)
While the message is shown, VDR is completely blocked, not starting
timers and similar stuff.
From the main thread you can use mtStatus as type to display messages
asynchronously. mtStatus messages will be shown without blocking until
manually removed or overwritten.
