Only a workaround:
You can put this in your .profile, or just alias vlc to "PTHREAD_DIAGASSERT=A 

The problem is in VLC and this problem remains unnoticed on Linux,
because of glibc's permissive behaviour, so there are some hiding bugs can be 
triggered under NetBSD.

I should compile their HEAD and nag them with bugreports in the near future. :)
(they use qt4 in the latest development  version btw)

Hope that helps.
