Yes, the memory leak bug came into play originally when audio was missing
and that is what was patched.  It should also work if video is missing.  The
rest of the services need to be patched as well.  However, it seemed to me
that audio and video services were the only services referenced by the
file.  Yes, I did create the patch to cover my use case as it makes use of
only video and audio services.  I would encourage someone with more VLC
knowledge than myself to revise/rewrite the patch or re-architect the module
correctly.  I appreciate Rafaël for bringing attention to this issue as I
would like this bug to be fixed correctly.  ;-)
