It's also not a vlc bug.

If you must know details (which is why I suggested contacting distro 
support), vlc maintains a cache of plugin details (via vlc-cache-gen), but 
if that cache is missing or stale, it'll try to query all plugins at 
runtime.  That's the case where problems can occur.

Distro packaging should ensure that vlc-cache-gen is run every time the 
software gets installed or updated.
