Public bug reported:

With some videos, it freezes VLC (windowed) and the whole computer. I
can still hear the sound playing, and the computer operates normally
again after the video is done playing.

While it's frozen, I can't move the mouse, none of the hotkeys work
(ctrl alt t, alt tab, etc), and none of the screen updates. Even the vol
up/down keys on my Thinkpad don't do anything anymore.

Once the video is done playing in VLC, everything is back to normal.

It doesn't always happen with the same video, and it's not always at the
same point in the video.
