I do not know the specific problem, but 10 is a magic number in MLT.
It is the default size of a mlt_cache. For example, there can only be
10 instances of avformat producer active at one time. Sound like the
Caching lets you make an object model with hundreds (thousands?) of
avformat producer objects. Without it, it was holding all of the files
open and one could easily exhaust max file handles or threads
(multi-threaded decoding) per process.
