[vlc-devel] macosx: caching problem in 0.9.2

Playing content over smb over WLAN results in audio (always) and video  
(sometimes) stuttering, every couple of seconds. Bandwidth and latency  
however are quite good. The messages window contains many entries like  
this: http://pastebin.com/f57899086

In 0.8.6 stuttering was generally resolved by increasing the caching  
value for the File Access Module. In 0.9.2 this has no effect at all.  
In 0.8.6 playback is delayed slightly after starting, because the  
cache is being filled; in 0.9.2 no such behaviour is observed and the  
stuttering continues.

This evidence makes me believe that the caching setting for File is  
simply ignored. If there is a better explanation for the stuttering,  
please do tell.
