[vlc-devel] Problem with RTSP streaming in VLC 0.8.4

I've compiled vlc 0.8.4 on SuSE 9.2 and i'm experiencing some strange 
behaviour while receiving a multimedia session with RTSP.

When I launch vlc from the command line passing a rtsp url, the first time 
VLC starts correctly and plays the audio/video session. After this I close 
VLC. When I launch VLC from the command line again, VLC seems to get stuck 
opening the audio/video session (there's a few seconds delay) and a lot of 
video packets get dropped. I've checked the packet loss with LIVE.COM's 
reception stats (from RTPSource). I'm evaluating packet loss so this 
behaviour is not desired.

With previous versions of VLC this didn't happen (eg: compiling VLC 0.8.2 
and liking against the same libraries). The problem seems to be in the long 
delay between starting to read packets from RTP and opening the video 
decoder or video output. As I said, this happens after having closed VLC a 
first time; subsequent times VLC is opened this problem occurs. With 
previous versions this delay doesn't happen.

What could be the problem?
