Yes, I agree with you that vlclua_dialog_delete is not perfect. I have to 
admit I didn't really know how to manage this dialog destruction. The current 
solution is some kind of a work around, as you can see.

The idea was that I don't trust the interface will properly destroy the dialog 
in time. I can investigate it further though...

Best regards,
