the package distributed by debian-multimedia is not based on ffmpeg 0.6,
it is just horribly and confusingly named. It is based on SVN trunk,
were a lot of development is going on, and such compatibility bugs still
need to be found and ironed out. Christian Marillat is obviously not
helping with that at all.

And I've asked you to check this. Until this happens, I'd agree to leave
this bug closed.

Well, for exactly reasons like this, I find installing libraries from
3rd party repositories problematic at least.

Well, you've reported an imcomplete bug, and I've told you what
information is missing. It would be great if you could help with filling
the gaps.
