when decoding the smclockhuffyuv.avi.1.205 file from issue 1240 there is
a crash because (once more) the VLC tables 3,4 and 5 are NULL.
The reason is that init_vlc_sparse in generate_joint_tables fails.
Since that function "returns" void, does that mean that the bug is
elsewhere and it should never fail or are there just a lot of checks for
all those init_vlc* functions missing?
