What I meant was:
I cannot imagine that deleting and cloning FFmpeg can 
ever fix a bug (how would that be possible?) - it is 
of course possible that you had a local change or that 
you did not run make distclean (or even that make 
distclean is broken). You would have to compare your 
old and your current checkout to know what happened.

If you were right, it would sound more like a bug in 
git than in FFmpeg imo...
