Seems to independent from kernel version. But I'll write a summary to
mpayer-users, to collect some more info about these strange bugs.

But maybe we should pay attention to something to keep code working on SMP
too. I know nothing about SMP, but there are requirements to the code.

DivX is a codec. AVI is a file format.
divx-coded files are avi or asf file format, so the above thing is true
for divx too.

Known problem of the Indeo 3.x and 4.x codecs.
(and maybe ASV2 codecs in RGB mode)
