Intel Mac version 0.8.6f on Mac OS X Client 10.5.2
Hardware: Mac Mini 2GB RAM with no attached monitor.  Not limited to
the Mini, this happens on servers too.

When running VLC on a remote machine, observing it using the built-in
screen sharing, VLC runs fine until you ask for something that
displays the video window.

This crash has been evident for many past versions, but I'm finally
ready to have it gone.  When testing mcast streams, it would be nice
to see VLC playing on a remote machine, even if performance is lousy
through all the software/video layers.

QuickTime Player plays MP4 videos fine.

This crash is reliably repeatable.

I'm happy to test new versions on a number of different Macs in this scenario.
