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.
