This should be solved now, right ?
I'd love to hear anything either way.

8 libvlccore.2.dylib RunThread video_output/video_output.c:1195
7 libvlccore.2.dylib vout_RenderPicture video_output/vout_pictures.c:444
6 libvlccore.2.dylib spu_RenderSubpictures video_output/ 
5 liblibass_plugin.dylib UpdateRegions /Users/hartman/Development/vlc- 
4 libass.3.dylib ass_render_frame
3 libass.3.dylib ass_render_event
2 libass.3.dylib render_text
1 libass.3.dylib render_overlap
0 libSystem.B.dylib calloc

This looks like a leak of the ass_composite_cache. #mplayerdev advised  
me to try and use git://greg.geekmind.org/libass.git
I have tried this, and it has the same leaky behaviour.

At this time, I can only think to switch the default prio of libmpeg2  
to lower than that of avcodec...
