Bug#651900: gnome-core: Unable to play videos in vlc inside gnome

package: gnome-core
version: 1:3.0+6
Severity: normal


When I try to see a video (or to see a v4l2 device) with vlc, X will
restart and my gnome session is out. (with mplayer or cheese it works ok)

Inside awesome wm I can use vlc and not crash is produced (that is why I
don't open this bug against vlc)

I'm attaching my .xsession-errors and Xorg.0.log (but Xorg.0.log doesn't
show any error).

I did

$ echo "I'm going to start vlc" >> .xsession # just before launching vlc

Please reassign this bug where it should be.

Thank you very much
PD: How could I start a gnome session from classic shell . doesn't work
"fine" with "startx gnome-session -- :1 # unable to open a terminal" and
not with "startx gnome-shell -- :1 # well it locked (crashed) my computer
(maybe bad luck?)" ?
