Well, not to print a message is a decision already made. The code to
handle this is already there already (e.g. when the first call to
rm_assemble_video_frame does not allocate a frame it will not crash,
the code protects against that - it is just the code I changed that
seems to break assumptions by not resetting vst->slices when it resets
I don't know why the ++vst->cur_slice > vst->slices and vst->videobufpos
+ len > vst->videobufsize neither return an error nor print an error
message, but if that is the wrong behaviour they still should be fixed
independently and not as part of a crash fix.

Of course but I consider that rather independent.
