VLC is undergoing some sanitization in core... And this sanitization  
triggers some deep libvlccore bugs. That may explain. It may stabilize  
in the following week or months.

libvlc_run_interface is expecially useful for vlc. It starts the given  
or the default interface module.

So basically I don't think you want to use it, appart if you want to  
start a telnet backdoor in your app :)
