vlc won't start (aborts) With openSUSE-10.3-beta3 on my 32-bit
installation. Further investigation revealed it gives a segmentation
fault if run as user root.

It will start as a regular user, if it is started in a konsole this way:

G_SLICE=always-malloc vlc

My speculation is this might be related to wxwidgets (see this mandriva
bug thread):

I posted the results of research into this by Jonathan_R (and a bit of
typing / surfing by myself) here:
(post #12 to #19)

and here:

Thank-you for your many efforts in packaging vlc for openSUSE.  vlc
works well on my SUSE-10.0, openSUSE-10.1 and 10.2 PCs.
