NuppelVideoRecorder.cpp -- FormatTeletextSubtitles, vbi_event, doVbiThread, 
and the code in libs/libvbitext.  Re-enable it by removing the 3 commented 
lines starting at line 88 in recorderbase.cpp.  Main issue with it was it 
would crash randomly for people with it enabled.  I believe the issue is that 
it's overwriting the ends of its internal buffers (backtraces were rather 
weird, but consistent with that kind of memory corruption), but as I can't 
even test the code I can't tell.

If you can fix it, I'd really appreciate that =)
