When I played arround with this, I noticed that the transition from a 
DVD playlist item to a file item is different from a going from one 
file to another. Appearantly, going from one file to the next 
completely deletes the video output instance, but going from DVD 
playback to an AVI file delays the deletion of the video output 
instance. The effect is that the video for the AVI will not have 
overlays (since they are still in use by the DVD output), and my new 
code for remembering the settings does not work. The first item is 
annoying enough. I would assume, that the destruction of the DVD output 
is delayed, to see if a new DVD title maybe has the same output 
parameters, and the instance can be continued to be used. That is all 
fine, but can't we have both, the clean exit _before_ a new instance is 
created _and_ the reuse of an existing instance?
