And afterwards, it's overwritten (to zero, see below in http.c) if the
stream supports the GetRange HTTP method. The indexing in ogg is only
triggered if is_stream is zero, so it has to be zero. Add a printf() at
the end just before the return in http_open_cnx() and also in the ogg
demuxer (ogg_get_length() in ogg2.c) if you don't believe me. :-).

By preventing it to be set to 0 (or well, that worked for me). But
really, that is a hack. Another variable (is_network_stream or so)
should be introduced that is always set to 1 for network inputs (e.g.
mms, http) and prevents indexing in ogg. It is never a good idea to
index network streams. The funny thing is that by code, it doesn't seem
like ogg indexing should take so long, I should probably debug that code
and see what's going on...
