VLC 1.0.2 from pkgsrc -current segfaults right when you close it. This is a
2.5.1 release.

Steps to reproduce:
Start VLC gui by issuing 'vlc'. Then just close the application, it will
segfault instanlty.

More information on the way.

I've been playing around a bit with VLC (after compiling world, and all my
pkgsrc with debugging symbols).
The testing machine is a VM so I access to it via ssh. I've installed all the
needed packages to be able to forward X to my local display.

So, I've run VLC in my local display and it does segfault after closing, just
like always. As I got a non-meaningful backtrace, I decided to run it from my
gdb. It segfaults again! It doesn't even show any window and this is the backtrace:

It seems it hits another segfault in initalization, but well, I still wanted to
find out the backtrace after a the crash while closing. So I
started VLC again and then attached with gdb. The issued 'cont' in gdb, went to
VLC window and closed it.
This time there's a weird error. See the backtrace:

I hope this throws a bit more light into this.
