The reason I put it in libvlc was an error I got in the VLMTest classes 
upon libvlc release (which is performed at the end of each test method). 
The error was about some input not properly released during the libvlc 
cleanup. The vlm_Delete is called in many modules and I thought that 
changing it could have caused regressions (if it is used in many places 
as is, and no one complained about it, the delete should be correct as 
is for those situations), and the lack of tests on those modules does 
not help.

If you are confident about moving the clear_medias inside the 
vlm_delete, it's ok for me.
