The effort to include a stacktrace is very appreciated.

I don't reproduce with master-git on my archlinux. Does it
affect only 3.0.x branch instead ?

`DISPLAY= ./vlc ~/Samples/Uchuu.mkv`

it is trying to start kms instead, and with
`DISPLAY= ./vlc ~/Samples/Uchuu.mkv -V gl,caca`

It would correctly start caca vout.
