That's correct - the problem is fixed in the newest version (>=2005.05.26) 
of the "LIVE.COM Streaming Media" libraries.

Note that the new "handleActiveParticipantsOnly" parameter to 
"setByeHandler()" is a default parameter, with default value True, so no 
changes to VLC's "livedotcom.cpp" code are required to use it.  Just 
recompile and relink.
