[vlc-devel] VLC hangs if "control=notify" is set in vlcrc on debian and ubuntu

This is in reference to ticket #4461
<https://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/6641>. I debugged the problem and
need some help in resolving it.
Reason of hang :
A thread (playlist's thread, maybe) locks the playlist-mutex at
src/playlist/thread.c line 573 and makes call to LoopRequest() at
line 589. This eventually results in calling playlist_CurrentInput() at
modules/notify/notify.c line 166. playlist_CurrentInput()
tries to lock the playlist-mutex , which causes deadlock.
What can be done in this case to resolve the deadlock?
