It's the file provided by Jai in the thread "[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH]
fix crash in realmedia demuxer". The file is a multirate-.rm file,
i.e. some tracks only start several MB into the file, I think there's
a filesize limit in av_find_stream_info(). anyway, that's practical,
in theory there's many reasons why av_find_stream_info() could fail to
find stream info for some tracks.

I know the fix isn't correct, just trying to describe the problem and
hope someone will make this hack unnecessary in my local tree.
