My patch modifies net_ConnectDgram.
Each time this function is called, it is with a default value of -1, except one
time :
It is called through "static inline int net_ConnectUDP" in vlc_network.h

I found five occurences of net_ConnectUDP, in whole vlc source code.
And 3 of them was a call with 0 value, so I replaced it with -1 in this new

It should be safe now, no ?
