Looks like a nice bugreport, except that when reporting an mplayer bug
you should _always_ use the latest CVS. In this case, the bug you're
reporting was (I think) fixed about two weeks after the version you're
using. Update your CVS of both mplayer and libavcodec (keep in mind that
ffmpeg CVS is hosted at mplayerhq.hu now). If that doesn't solve the
problem let us know.
