Works fine (or at least as intended) for me, however:

If it works (crashes for some formats) use -novideo instead of "-vc null -vo null".
In addition this will also still try to play video with the correct timing.
In rc4 it would just quit when audio is done, but in general that isn't desireable
Using -benchmark should improve that.
