Unfortunately this doesn't fix the 1.5 Gigabyte memory invalidation problem.

Since the problem exists in libvlccore this only occurs when input 
changing fast,
as well as if you use Goom visualization (already made a ticket on this 
few months ago)
(you can check Trac if it ever comes back on ...)
on each jump to next audio playlist item there's huge memory leaked.

Therefore seeing vlc.exe process in task manager memory growing rapidly.
