Ideally, this should be fixed in bin/(win)vlc.c. Blocking on a
libvlc_AddIntf was not originally part of the design. For Windows(skins)
and MacOS, the libvlc_playlist_play call which is meant to start
playback is executed when vlc terminates !

Maybe, adding a libvlc_is_alive( instance ) to the API and use it to
limit calling libvlc_playlist_play when it makes sense would be a
cleaner way.

Otherwise, this easy way is the patch I sent previously.
