Actually no, setting those variables to nil didn't stop the crash. But  
it's good form resetting an object pointer after sending the object a  
release message. I suspect, but haven't investigated thoroughly, that  
p_vout->p_sys->o_glview is a player in the segfault I see.

What fixed the crash was checking p_vout->b_die in the -reshape method.
