Many Thanks to you and JimX86.

This fix worked for me too! Many thanks to all!
Specifically, I created a ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file and put this in it:
Code:
gtk-theme-name="GTK+"
I then changed VLC's :look and feel to GTK+ as well.
Then I modified /etc/profile.d/qt4.sh and added the stuff Disturbed1 suggested to the end of the file. After logging out and back in VLC does not hang. Great fix!

Okay, all of you lurkers in this thread, I'd like to confirm that the latest gtk+2 rebuild in -current fixes all of these issues:
Code:
Thu Dec 16 18:57:05 UTC 2010
l/gtk+2-2.22.1-x86_64-3.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Moved system gtkrc to /etc/gtk-2.0/.  This fixes some issues with KDE.
If I'm correct (and testing here indicates that I am), then vlc should work just fine now.
We removed the GTK2_RC_FILES setting from the profile scripts, so you should remove it from anywhere you had previously set it. Also, make sure any custom gtkrc that you had installed in /etc/gtk-2.0/$(host_triplet)/gtkrc has been moved to /etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc -- the only thing in the arch-specific directory now should be gtk.immodules.

I've been following this thread but never fixed the VLC XFCE issue. And yes, opening the dialog now works! (And I like the xfce icons )
