In that case, maybe you should generate some script for bash, and let it 
work all night. You may also check in script how mkvmerge exited,
so if random segfault occurs, let script try one more time (do not make 
a loop - it may become forever). What version of gcc do you use?
I think about AMD 64bit in future, I am interested.
