[rtmpdump] rtmpdump fails if download takes too long

If a download takes more than ~1,5 minutes rtmpdump quits with this message:

Caught signal: 13, cleaning up, just a second...
> ERROR: WriteN, RTMP send error 32 (42 bytes)
> ERROR: RTMP_ReadPacket, failed to read RTMP packet body. len: 68763
> 20194.415 kB / 134.13 sec (59.5%)
> Download may be incomplete (downloaded about 59.50%), try resuming

errno 32 is EPIPE. the error appears both compiled with openssl or gnutls
(not tested with polarssl).
if you use wireshark you can see that it's not normal that the media server
closes the connection after a specific time because it doesn't happen if you
use the official swf player.
a less important problem is that rtmpdump doesn't even start the download if
you specify the .swf player file via -W
