Karma

After rippling a negative karma wave through the GStreamer Universe with my build cleanup that triggered a registry problem when using packages of GStreamer with the name and origin set, I felt I had to restore the balance. So I commited a patch that forks during registry building to make sure that the main GStreamer process doesn’t keep all the plugins opened after scanning them to rebuild the registry.

It seems to work fine here, wondering if forking is too much of an overhead in all cases. But compared to the overhead of gnome-settings-daemon or mixer_applet having the bad luck of being the first one to run after an update to plugins and eating a lot of memory because of it, this seems better.
