	I always do a 'make distclean' after a "make install" precisely to
	avoid having old .o or .a files around.

	The program goes into an endless loop in mov_check_file() when
	playing a SVCD.

	ifdef'ing out the one check fixes the problem.   In the older
	source tree (from Feb 18-20) that extra 'if' block is not present.  
	The comment about "is this right?" suggests that the code might
	not be a good idea.

	That one I haven't seen - yet ;))    I have a problem with video
	only but it will have to wait until I can power up the machine with
	the test file on it.
