this has been fixed in svn a while ago ... i think ... at least i approved 
the fix

Yes, Revision 7486 seems not to do this. Thanks. And yes, I think I did see that fix in the thread somewhere.

gcc is a pile of shit, anyway ffserver too is fairly unstable, bugfixes
for it would be very welcome and no i dont think upgrading your kernel
will help at least not more then any other random change

I did try using gdb to find the problem, but not much beyond that. I will see what I can do. Is there another compiler to use besides gcc?

improvments to the docs are always welcome ...

Gladly. This is an easy one.

Any word on the problem with drawtext? (no black background).  One "workaround" is to call the vhook twice, first laying down some black characters, (possibly ascii box characters) then white on top.
