To elaborate... from what I can tell, this is what is happening currently.

1st pass:
major sync found at byte 4
mp->in_sync = 1
return 0

2nd pass:
nothing added to pc->buffer
try to read major sync header, but crc fails
mp->in_sync = 0
skip 1 byte

3rd pass:
sync found at byte 3
tries to ff_combine_frame() at position -1, but buffer is still empty so
it crashes

The patch I suggested to Ramiro buffers that 1 byte when sync is lost
instead of skipping it.
