Anyway it worked. Im not sure why the seg was happening but the only
thing i changed to the system is that i did a make install from vlc ,
instead of runing my vlc client program under a shell with
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=path_to_vld_build/src/.libs.. Maybe it loaded some
libs from the system path and a conflict happened ??

I'll be posting a patch right for it just. But i suppose that this
event might come in handly for a libvlc library user ...
