This was/is happening with all my DVDs but also with other source format
such as AVi and others... So this doesn't mean this is due to a dvdplay
error as far as I have investigated :) What I am sure is that whatever
the output used and whatever the input method I used is leading to a
segfault :( I'll try to check that with my debugger :)

No but I will. But this seems not to be a dvd input error but more an
audio problem or even more maybe a spudec or maybe an xvideo problem
because I always encounter spudec error and my vlc session is always
segfaulting just after a xmovewindow (even if I do NOT move windows :)
