In the case of the line preceeded by if ( p_input->p->p_sout ) it's
definitely only called when it's not NULL, thus pushing into the
resources internal for possible reuse. It should not be kept in
p_input->p->p_sout after that point.

So in general I think it's better to make sure p_input->p->p_sout is
reset to NULL every time it's passed to input_resource_RequestSout()
with a NULL string. It would also improve the readability of the code.
