pastebin would probably be fine. Full log (rtmpdump -z) from the current svn 
build would be good, including all the commandline params.

Unfortunately I'm not in Australia so I can't look at this directly. But 
you've got that backwards - my name is already all over this code, you should 
already know me. It's *you* who have to make yourselves known to us, if you're 
having problems and want to get help. This stuff gets downloaded by countless 
people all over the world, we can't keep track of who you all are...
