I don't know the inner workings, but it seems that ffserver doesn't
produce anything at all (except header), when one of the stream
definitions contains an error.
Without Strict -1, the mjpeg definition is wrong because of the
colorspace mismatch (see the ffserver output, it is sent to /dev/null in
the test script). Without the patch, ffserver doesn't even find the encoder.

Anyway, when (re)designing the regression test, I'd suggest to check
first if the output is reasonable. At the very least, the output files
should be 100000 bytes long. And only .swf and .rm outputs seem to be
currently playable for me.

Doing md5sums of empty files (like *.mpg above) is certainly possible,
but I am not sure if it has any sense :)
