How about adding this short and simple answer to the faq?

In <http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/documentation.html>, there's a link to  
<http://arrozcru.no-ip.org/ffmpeg/>, which points out most windows  
related problems. It already says to use bash version => 2.05b.

Feel free to alter the wiki for solutions to any other problems you  
may find...
