Description Eugene Shatokhin 2014-04-09 17:05:06 MSD
1) run vlc (checked on version 2.1.3);
2) open some video file there, let it play a little;
3) close vlc;
4) see the message about segmentation fault.

When running vlc under GDB, one could obtain the following backtrace:

This is a known problem but it is unclear who is responsible to fix it.

Vlc developers claim it is not their fault (https://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/8208), KDE developers state it is not their fault either (https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=234484).

Looks like QDBus tries to access an already deleted object for some reason.
