Yes, you're probably right - and I'll update the "LIVE555 Streaming 
Media" libraries to be more robust when calling "select()".

However, this will not stop the signal from potentially being caught 
somewhere else in the VLC plugin, so I think it would still be a good 
idea to find out exactly why/where it's being generated, and mask it 
if appropriate.
