I am happy to take a look at all problematic samples. I cannot promise any 
sort of timeline for doing so, however, as I remain committed at this 
point to getting the base implementation in place.  I fully intend to 
support with bug fixes/enhancements from there.

Priority will be given to those who have tested their samples with the 
reference decoder (and who state so) and those that describe the problem 
well (crashes, visual problems, error messages).

Anyone having problems, please be sure I haven't mentioned the type of 
error you are getting in prior posts as a known issue. I would still like 
the sample, but won't take time to form detailed responses to all 

In brief, known issues include:
1. Errors about abs_diff_pic_num overflow 
2. Errors about get_buffer failing (happens with non-PAFF files/pre-PAFF 
   patches, too)
