Everytime I have hit that assert, I was able to walk down the VLC object tree

The object tree is already available in RC ("tree") and in Qt. If you stop the
playback, it´s pretty obvious which ones are leaked. I don´t know about MacOS,
but I don´t see the point in adding a log message that is more likely to get
lost - given it occurs right before an assertion failure or the process exit.
