Sounds like this bug:

One work-around is to compile libmpdemux/demux_mkv.c with -O2.
I also inserted some fprintf's various places to locate the bug.
I didn't locate the bug, but inserting those fprintf's also
"fixed" the problem even when compiled with -O3.

So it's been reported twice before. It _could_ be a bug in gcc,
but it might also very well not be a bug in gcc.
