I still have the feeling I'm sending my messages into a black box. Is 
anyone fixing this stuff? I've found more bugs (for instance, realvideo 
seeking seems broken as well in some cases) and I'd really like to help 
ffmpeg stability, but this really requires more cooperation than terse 
one-line messages and ffmpeg developers disagreeing on the proper way to 
send in bug reports.

Note that I don't expect anyone to immediately fix everything (you're 
doing this in your free time, I know), but a message to the effect 'I'm 
working on it' (or even 'Sorry, I know this is my area, but I don't have 
time right now') would be great. Also, Mans is currently the only one 
that's subscribed to the bug report in bugzilla, so I'm afraid if anyone 
else wants to help, that person not getting all the information he should.
