Well "alsa-lib" is the name upstream and the name of the source package

If problem there is, it is the same in Sid.
Does it happen every time ? On every media ? Do you use PulseAudio ?
If it's reproducable, can I have the logs (vlc -vvv ...)
Reading from the Changelog, this as to do with the probing of the sound
card to see how many channel it supports or rather n reprobing for a
second media. It has also to do with thread-safety so it might not be
easy to reproduce
