I cannot reproduce your problem on Mac OS X 10.5.

But this is not the important thing here.  The important thing here is
that you are blatantly violating our license in many ways with your
easywma and easywmv shareware programs:


And now you have the cheek to come here to get help preparing your next
release?  This is galling and the fact that you have some patches in
FFmpeg makes it doubly disappointing.

Notice that the only reason you are still not featured on our list of
shame is that the issue tracker is down.
