I have uploaded new versions of the patches, which now use thread- 
local variables to store the vlc object structure.


The ErrorHandler can quickly be tested by using a low OSC port number:

./bin/vlc --plugin-path=./modules --control osc --osc-port 10
VLC media player 1.0.0-git Goldeneye
[0x972c030] osc interface error: liblo error 13: 'Permission denied'  
at 'bind()'
[0x972c030] osc interface error: liblo initialisation failed
[0x972c030] main interface error: no suitable interface module
[0x96768d0] main libvlc error: interface "osc,none" initialization  
[0x96768d0] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use  
'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.
Remote control interface initialized. Type `help' for help.
