I do occasionally with mlt. A number of things seem to occur with
dependencies and dlopen and related. For example, with swfdec, if it
is built against gstreamer, seems to generate a lot of complaints. I
made suppressions for things related to dlerror_run or things I
struggled to track down due to lack of symbols and that trace back to
mlt_factory_init (something that seems to occur once just due to
loading a plugin). However, coverage is another issue. I do not
usually have much time to create tests to exercise various code paths.
