I am sorry but I think your expectations are way unreasonable, esp.
since some have made comparisons with proprietary companies - so far the
most usable response I have ever gotten from any of those was in
response to an NVidia CUDA but report, and that was basically "it will
be fixed in the next release. And no, we do not know when that will be".
This case basically has this very same answer, but everyone considered
that a rather useless reply and instead told you to use SVN.
And btw. for rc2 you likely will be able to work around this problem with
"-demuxer lavf -correct-pts", though I did not test it (and you will
lose support for mov subtitles with these options).
