The answer is: the filename field in AVFormatContext is not used to open
the file, only the argument to avformat_open_input().

It is the same patch, with the memory leak fixed.

What Marton was saying, and I agree with him, is that 50002 is not less
arbitrary than 4096. It seems quite more so, in fact.

You cannot pretend you fixed the issue if you just raised the limit. I
do not oppose this patch per se, but you cannot close ticket #6761,
because if you do so, anybody will provide a concat file that requires
50003 and reopen.
