This was caused by upgrade from Qt 5.4 to 5.5. It is either vlc  or Qt 5.5
 issue (latter being more likely). I leave it up to maintainer to decide
whether to reassign.
However, from a user POV, vlc is basically unusable for video with this bug in
There are two bugs here though:
1) double-click not working for full-screening. Can be worked around by
setting QT_XCB_NO_XI2_MOUSE=1 when starting vlc :
$ QT_XCB_NO_XI2_MOUSE=1 vlc
2) video is only partially visible. Not aware of any workarounds yet.
