I investigated the problem a little bit more, and it seems that: the 
"?..." options must be removed from the host name, but not from the path 
(also see last message from Michael). r10775 fixed host parsing (which 
was causing the ffplay regression), but broke path parsing (by removing 
"?..." from it), and noone noticed that.

Now, Michael's patch seems to fix almost everything (I only found a 
suspicious case that I am testing).
