[vlc-devel] [PATCH] Tries to fix possible deadlock in libavcodec.

Using the latest git version, VLC would always hang when seeking in a
video containing H.264 video. The UI would be functional, but to kill
the application I had to resort to kill -9. It seems that VLC now
supports multithreaded operation in libavcodec. (I have ffmpeg-mt). It
worked just fine in 1.1.2.
I found that it would always hang in a certain wait() call in
modules/codec/avcodec/video.c, and commenting this one out made seeking
working again. Problem is that I have no idea why this worked.
