Hi j-b,

Resending this message (a little revised) as I accidentally replied to
you personally, and not `vlc-devel`.

Because there is an invisible relationship between the variables named
`objects`, and `varnames` (where `varnames[i]` and `objects[i]` belong

This should be refactored in the future to use a container with
`std::pair<T1,T2>` or `QPair<T1,T2>` - though I just wanted to fix the
immediate issue now (as the refactor would be quite intrusive).

Best Regards,
