Yes, the problem is that the symbol codec_wav_tags was an internal
symbol and not supposed to be used outside of libavformat.
Unfortunately, mplayer used it nevertheless.

This issue has been reported now a number of times. Perhaps we should
just add a "Breaks" relationship on libavcodec like this:

Package: libavformat52
Breaks: mplayer (<< 1.0~rc4)

This should force the mplayer package to be upgraded when installing
ffmpeg 0.6.
