here is the one that causes the SEGFAULT:
first line is line 4957
if(total_coeff == max_coeff)
        if(n == CHROMA_DC_BLOCK_INDEX)
            zeros_left= get_vlc2(gb, chroma_dc_total_zeros_vlc[
total_coeff-1 ].table, CHROMA_DC_TOTAL_ZEROS_VLC_BITS, 1);
            zeros_left= get_vlc2(gb, total_zeros_vlc[ total_coeff-1
].table, TOTAL_ZEROS_VLC_BITS, 1);

the second one causes the crash...
when it crashes, gb is correct (same as previous calls)
total_zeros_vlc[ total_coeff-1 ].table = NULL

Hope that helps more...

if i find other ones, i'll send them here :)
