I think this is the criticial issue for this bug. However, I'm pretty
confident that this will happen with the ffmpeg version from
experimental as well.
You are doing excellent (upstream) work, which should definitly go in
upstream. May I suggest to forward this analysis upstream, and ask them
to confirm that audacity works against a copy of ffmpeg from the 0.6
branch: `svn export svn://svn.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg/branches/0.6`
I expect to release 0.6 this week, and will then upload "final" 0.6
packages to debian/experimental and ubuntu/maverick.
