I built it on Red Hat 9 with debug info (--enable-debug) but it didn't 
help -- gdb was thoroughly confused when the segfault happened (see my 
earlier postings).  I'm hoping to test the CVS version on RH9 this 
weekend, though it may have to wait until Monday (no Intel boxes here, 
and my friend had problems setting one up for me).  However, it ran on 
my iBook all day w/o crashing, while 0.5.3 would.  Interestingly 
enough, when 0.5.3 crashed on my iBook under gdb, I was able to get a 
stack trace, but it was inside of vlc_mutex_lock() and seemed to be in 
the input thread (input_dec.c I believe), not video_output.c.  I didn't 
pursue it, though, thinking the platforms were different enough that I 
shouldn't be debugging on Mac OSX when our project is targeting RH9.
