MEncoder is unmaintained and needs a major rewrite that nobody seems to
be interested in doing at the moment. So don't expect much interest in
minor MEncoder-related patches when its major problems would still

I think the libass maintainer has little time at the moment. I'll see
how ugly a full fix would be. According to the C standard the padding
bytes may change value when values are stored to the struct (for example
the compiler could fully write a register wider than the value stored,
possibly with junk in the higher bytes) so zeroing the struct before use
does not guarantee the padding bytes will be zeros.
