Bug Description

VLC media player 0.8.1 (command: wxvlc) on Hoary 5.04 crashes when the window is
resized to 0 width

VLC media player 0.8.1 (command: wxvlc) on Hoary 5.04 crashes when the window is
resized to 0 width. If the handle on the side of the window is dragged,
ostensibly to make the playing area smaller, but is dragged until there is no
width, the play closes without error.

I ran the program from the terminal and here is the output:

seth@ubuntu:~$ wxvlc
VLC media player 0.8.1 Janus
[00000269] mpeg_audio decoder: MPGA channels:1 samplerate:22050 bitrate:32

The program '.' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
  (Details: serial 397 error_code 2 request_code 12 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
