Yes, slices has often issues because that feature is not properly tested
in FFmpeg itself.
Can you link to a specific divx file (e.g. from samples.mplayerhq.hu)?
A gdb backtrace is also very useful.
I'll try to look into it somewhen, but in principle avoiding -slices is
a good idea unless the extra performance is really needed.
