Hi all,
I have just updated vlc from packman repo from version 1.1.7 to 1.1.8
on openSUSE 11.4 x86_64.

Now some flv file crashes vlc. If I run "gdb vlc" and then I try to
open such file, I obtain:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

I had no problem using vlc 1.1.7 playing the same file.

Is it a known problem? Should I open a bug report upstream?
