you are confused.
codec_tag must be 0 for rgb in avi. and the first entry is 0
if rgb in avi is stored with non 0 codec_tag currently then you
introduced a very serious bug. And the fix is to override it in
riff.c as i said multiple times.

If a bugfix only changes things apparently unrelated to the bug with no
further explanation, that is a good sign that the bugfix is wrong.
