Dear Maintainer,

xine-list-1.2 behaves non-deterministically:

[[[
# while true; do echo $((++i)):; xine-list-1.2 | xxd; done 
1:
2:
3:
4:
5:
6:
7:
8:
00000000: b83b                                     .;
9:
10:
11:
12:
13:
⋮

^C
]]]

When xine-list-1.2 does have output, B8 3B is the most common output,
but not the only one; some other values were:

00000000: b81b b13b                                ...;
00000000: b82b 7c7f 3b                             .+|.;
00000000: b83b                                     .;
00000000: b83b 1cd1 3b                             .;..;
00000000: b84b 3b                                  .K;
00000000: b86b 3b                                  .k;
00000000: b86b b4e9 3b                             .k..;
00000000: b8ab 4a3b                                ..J;
00000000: b8cb 3b                                  ..;
00000000: b8db 3b0a 3b                             ..;.;

This may be related to the following valgrind warning:

[[[

]]]

(The "failed to read types info" error message and the "1 block
definitely lost" leak summary occur every time; the conditional jump or
move only happens sometimes.)

Finally, I believe this issue may be the reason the 'xine-ui' package is
not reproducible:
..
    
https://tests.reproducible-builds.org/debian/rb-pkg/unstable/amd64/xine-ui.html
..
That diff currently shows the files are identical, except that the left
file has B8 3B and the right file B8 8B 66 3B, , exactly at the location
where the build might call xine-list:
..
    
https://sources.debian.net/src/xine-ui/0.99.9-1.2/misc/desktops/Makefile.am/#L31-L43

Cheers,

Daniel
