I think(?) this was fixed after 0.4.9-pre1.  I don't use ffserver,
but I do remember some discussion about it being broken, and
eventually fixed, some time ago.

anyway, it's possible noone is answering because whenever some has
a problem with a "more than 24 hours since CVS checkout" version of
ffmpeg, the first advice is, "use CVS".
