lars has mailed me the following 2 links

they seem to contain some hints toward security issues in ffmpeg,
i guess i dont need to mention that i was unaware of security issues in
svn, if any of them do apply to svn ...

Sadly i caught a virus a few days ago and have some fever ATM so it would
be great if some other volunteers could help me go over these issues
check if they have been fixed already in svn and if not fix them

besides that
* 0.5 is not secure and not supported by us, people should always use svn
* obviously NULL pointer dereferences and such are a rather minor issue, its
  the arbitrary code execution cases that need to be dealt with ...
