Unfortunately we can't do that automatically: packages are not allowed 
to modify user configuration files at upgrade.

My guess on what goes wrong is that when vlc was started with versions 
of qt and gtk older than the ones I mentioned, it stored a huge window 
size before dying. Now that it is started again, it tries to resize the 
window to the stored size and dies again.

I don't think the config file can go wrong for stable-only users (ie 
users who did not use vlc with qt and gtk from Oneiric alpha or beta) so 
that should limit the affected users to people who are more 
computer-savvy and can find this bug report. If stable-only users are 
affected, we could however patch vlc to limit the size of the restored 
window.
