What kind of exercise is this?!
EPG p/f info updates Now Playing field and hence is displayed in VLC status
line, in the window title and in OSD. It's visible to all users at first look.
Do you really want to release next VLC version which will display lots of

not the only one affected, thus even if someone fixes the win32 contrib, it
wouldn't make the problem disappear.
