Hi Tony,
 thanks for reporting this use case. I'll try to reproduce it with a
unit test, but when using the old java bindings (the ones before the
transition to JNA) I recommend to stick to an old version of the windows
libvlc dll. This because alot happend to libvlc in the while and the
jvlc dll were built on top of the old libvlc.

Furthermore, the more I test libvlc-control the more problems I find, so
if you have a working app on the libvlc, do not upgrade.
