It looked much simpler to make vlc cope when i was still allowed to use
var_Get() -- would've been possible to add a member to that structure to
say if it were undefined or not.

For the moment, you've got two choices:
 - Either accept this as is and we can work on a way to properly fix it
 - Or i remove the options, cripple the things the user can twiddle
   while something to fix this is invented.

Without an indepth look, i still don't think it works that way.
