I've just switched to mingw 4.2.0 and libavcodec says that it's
miscompiled, it seems just related to gcc but I've looked around
internet and other os/gcc versions got same problem.

Someone says that it's harmless, a guy using my mencoder binary reported
crashes while on my system it works.

Somthing is changed with gcc stack alignment?
or a bug in binutils,
I'm still using x264 workaround for SECTION_RODATA misalignment

gcc is 4.2.0
binutils 2.17.50 20060824
(I'm talking about mencoder but I think here is the best place, or not?  :D)
