Comment(by danielk):

 Janne, av_free has had a NULL pointer check for a very long time for those
 few libc's that aren't NULL pointer safe, and to support the memalign
 hack, which requires the NULL pointer check. (i.e. this wasn't any
 different then the bug report was made, the backtrace may be bad if
 compile time optimizations were enabled --release-type=profile, or if
 something is overwriting memory.)
