Using VLC 0.8.5-r5 on ~x86, I get a deadlock message in console : "main video output error: caught in a callback deadlock?" when going to fullscreen, and the display freeze while sound is continuing. Tested with XV, X11 and OpenGL output, same result. After that, vlc needs to be killed (-9) to be stoped.
Using the patch proposed here : http://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?p=80235 completely solved the issue Please, can you apply it untill it's released upstream ?
