I had not yet read the LQ thread... just came home and answered the
first email I read.
I have not yet seen these doublefree errors with VLC, but I am not yet
running slackware-current on my desktop either so perhaps I have yet
to see it.
Anyway, it will not hurt to apply this patch if it is beneficial under
slackware-current. I am curious to see if it has any effect in
Slackware 12.0.
