Yes I think so. It might as well be a bug in my code, but as other rotate 
programs have the same problem (or build around it), this is not very likely. 
It would help, if anyone could tell me how to avoid the bug by altering some 
timeouts or how to predict the next death.
I am currently trying if `cat /dev/input/event3` is also dying after a while, 
however it has not stopped yet. Is there some information on this bug around? 
I have not found anything in the bugtracker.
