i don't recall ever making an explicit interface setting for vlc, but it's
not impossible that i did.

okay.  if this is the case (i am doing a test upgrade in a lenny chroot
right now but the connection is a little slow) then i suppose the severity
could be lowered to wishlist and possibly closed with the extra information
in NEWS.Debian and/or README.Debian.  I'll update the bug report accordingly
when i'm done with the test.
