That looks like a buggy taglib in Fedora.

Something is really wrong with your build if cache generation fails. It
actually seems like a safety feature to me.

Generally, if a module fails, VLC crashes. Again, that's why I find it best
to detect the problem before it hits customers.

gconv does the same with its plugins.

Not really, no. It's solely dependent on the content of lib, so it's fine
there (as with gconv). Second, it requires a 1:1 mapping to directories, so
/var/cache simply would not work.

That works out of the box with the current scheme - the cache is stored in
the same directory as the plugins themselves.
