I've run the program, and it doesn't find plugins right away, it also
doesn't find them after deleting cache. But after 'mv
/usr/libexec/gstreamer-1.0/gst-plugin-scanner.bckp' and clearing the
cache it works fine (with cache or not). It also works fine if you get
the gst-plugin-scanner back and keep the cache now.

But I sure did not ever removed gst-plugins-scanner previously (could
clean the caches though maybe). Can it be winegstreamer does something a
bit different and thus avoids the bad influence of scanner?
