Indeed "zypper dup --from packman" has 'downgraded' the vlc packages to 
the actual current ones and now everything's fine.

This is just feedback, please don't take it as me being non-appreciative 
of the work Packman repo maintainers do, but i would suggest trying to 
avoid issues like this (lower versioning of new packages, etc.) in 
future. I would like to able to offer openSUSE Leap with Packman on 
systems i provide, but i need to be confident that the GUI updater is 
going to 'just work', and not require this type of manual intervention.

Again, just feedback, if using the Packman repo comes with an 
expectation that the user will be able to handle some manual 
intervention now and then, fair enough and so be it, i'll figure out 
something else for my purposes.
