[MPlayer-users] -dumpstream problems after upgrading from 1.0pre4 to 1.0pre6

Hello, list.

I use mplayer (what a wonderful program! EU software
patents are evil!) to record (free) ASF audio streams.
It used to work nicely with 1.0pre4, but since I have
upgraded to 1.0pre6 (built from source, same
environment) it fails almost systematically, at
least with some streams:

- mplayer runs indefinitely (until the stream
connection dies somehow)
- it leaves a stream dump file of 0 or 2577 bytes

Here's an example case:

mplayer -dumpstream -dumpfile nostalgie.wmr  -playlist

Stream not seekable!

Then mplayer runs until I kill -15 it, and the
resulting file is either 0 or 2577 bytes long (always
that value). Stracing the process shows that
it's stuck on a read(3,...) system call.

If that can mean anything, since it's small I've
attached a sample 2577 bytes file to this mail.

I can live with 1.0pre4, but since it seems to have
appeared with 1.0pre6 I thought that it'd be useful to
report this. I can do more debugging if instructed (I
know how to use gdb).
