This commits FIXES a whole class of crashes on _ALL_ platforms. My
mistake... I thought the point of VLC was to be USABLE, rather than just

Frankly, I am quite annoyed at this stupid blaming scheme whereby tiny
accidental platform-specific compilation breakages would be more severe
than real bugs and missing features. Sorry, but this makes no sense to me.

As I already said, what, a week ago? Other people break my tree quite
often. Do I come and blame them all the time? No, I just checkout the
latest working version and shut up. Or better yet, I fix the minor issues
myself. I don't come and start blaming Pierre for not testing his commits
on Windows and Linux, when I know that his commits are actually correct,
and pointing out bugs in the Qt4 interface, the Atmo filter or what not.
