Yes, it works, at least it reports that the tests succeeded. Thanks for
pinning down this issue. Though Benoit was faster to test it and propose 
a patch [1], I felt like confirming it just in case (as I was the initial
reporter for this issue).

On a related side, maybe 'Regression tests' part in ffmpeg documentation
should be updated to add an advice (or requirement) to run regression tests
with all possible features enabled (including --enable-gpl) for better code
coverage? Otherwise 'pass regression tests' step in patch submission 
checklist is not well defined. Even a few more lines in the documentation can
help outsiders to get into ffmpeg development easier and make them provide
more useful feedback/bugreports reducing possibility of unintentionally doing
something in a wrong way and misunderstanding. Thank you again for your
continued ffmpeg support and fast resolution of problems.
