 From what I can tell, the real problem here is that the VLC plugin 
got a 'signal' (either from the browser, or elsewhere in the OS - 
it's not clear).  It just so happened that the plugin was sitting 
blocked in "select()" (in the event loop used by the "LIVE555 
Streaming Media" libraries) when this happened.  So, I don;t think 
these libraries are at fault, or need to be changed.

I think the resolution to this problem is to (i) find out what signal 
is being sent, and from where and why, and (ii) if appropriate, block 
the signal in the general VLC plugin code.
