Is the problem really related to the number of options, or to the  
options used?

(Just a note, you may want to use also the "--ignore-config" vlc  
option, so that local vlc config won't interfer)

I do believe that this option is the issue. What may be happening is  
that the input thread is not properly halted.

So this could be not directly related to the libvlc-control layer, but  
probably to vlc's core. It would be nice to investigate more...
