Follow up with the problem, I have a patch.
I'm not sure why they have this mixed up or I have misunderstood the 
code, if so, either way my patch to libgpg-error 1.9 will be correct or 
incorrect but it does stop the problem reoccurring.
Patch attached.
Therefore any code deals with the actual libgpg-error dll process 
threading will be contained (TLS).
Newly added code is for shared libraries only, since VLC win32 use 
statically linked libraries only the patch seems appropriate.

Anyone have any comments on the patch are welcome.

Best Regards,
