	Okay, in the end I had to do exactly that, and I managed to locate the bug between 
versions N-43194-gb288b4c (good) and N-43196-g3e1cf49 (bad). What I get after the last 
"git bisect bad" is the following message:

	Bisecting: 0 revisions left to test after this (roughly 0 steps)
	[2107009e7d351ff83a87fda161cc5269d2752428] lavf: move nb_decoded_frames out 
of info.

	Disclaimer: I know very little about C programming, much less about build tools, and 
today is the first time in my life that I had to use git for anything else than clone repositories, 
so I'm not sure what all this means. All I can tell you is that version  N-43194-gb288b4c 
works with my problem, while  N-43196-g3e1cf49 starts introducing the bug I mentioned.
