Hi All,

I am encountering a segmentation fault while closing the connection from the
client side.

I am using a VLC client and trying to stream a static file over RTSP.

My client tries to connect over RTP/UDP initially, but as it fails it
connects over RTP/TCP.
The streaming works fine for the first time.

But, if I stop the VLC client and then again play the same stream from the
client and wait till the streaming starts. Everything works fine in "THIS
But, if I stop the client before the streaming starts and again start the
streaming, it gives a "SEGMENTATION FAULT"

Below is the backtrace of the seg fault:

#0  0x0000003c49d52a38 in main_arena () from /lib64/libc.so.6
