This was supposed to have been fixed in glib2 (gobject) upstream by using
-Wl,nodelete when linking gobject:

$ LD_DEBUG=1 ./vlc-cache-gen -f ../modules/ 2>&1 | grep -i nodel
objname /usr/lib/libpthread.so.19.0 is nodelete
objname /usr/local/lib/libgobject-2.0.so.4200.1 is nodelete

But it doesn't appear to be working here.

$ LD_DEBUG=1 ./vlc-cache-gen -f ../modules/ 2>&1 | grep -i unload.*libgobject | uniq -c
  34 unload_shlib called on /usr/local/lib/libgobject-2.0.so.4200.1

Does anyone have an idea why nodelete doesn't seem to be working here?
