Bug#496291: vlc pop up three windows when only one would do (wmv file)

Package: vlc
Version: 0.8.6-svn20061012.debian-5.1+etch2

When trying to play the video downloaded from
<URL: http://www.uus.no/div/fode/babyvask_bleieskift.wmv >, vlc show
three windows with the video, instead of only the one I expected.

This is a bug, as the file in question only have one video.  When
playing in mplayer, only one window is shown, and when playing in
kaffine, only one window is shown and the resolution of the images
appear to be better than with vlc and gmplayer.

Please get vlc to only show one window when playing this video, and
preferably also to get better resolution on the images.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
