VLC segfaults on vlc-3.0.6-13-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Media - open multiple files - Add - (select some files) - Open - Play  - ???
Where did VLC go? It vanished!

This worked with 3.0.6-12 but doesn't with 3.0.6.13, luckily I still have the old version in the cache. Both seem to be built with gcc8 from the same revision oddly, but the newer one is a larger install so it must be different in some ways.

Code: [Select]
$ ls /var/cache/pacman/pkg/vlc*
/var/cache/pacman/pkg/vlc-3.0.6-12-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz  /var/cache/pacman/pkg/vlc-3.0.6-13-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

No, sorry, I had only quickly tested it. Now it plays the first file THEN segfaults. Open a single file and it segfaults too. But if you open multiple files it plays the first one OK. Back to the old version again...
