Test program for subtitleoverlay state change stall

After a PAUSED->READY change the sink pads are currently not set to
blocking state. When the element is set back to PAUSED, the change will
be done asynchronously, but as the _pad_blocked_cb() callback is now not
called, the state change never completes.

Fix that by setting the sink pads to blocking state on a PAUSED->READY
change, which ensures that the _pad_blocked_cb() is called when needed
on any future READY->PAUSED change. The sink pads are already put to
blocking state on NULL->READY change, so this behavior is consistent.

Git-formatted patch attached, and a simple quickly-hacked-up test program I
used which does NULL->READY->PAUSED->READY->PAUSED, useful with
