Comment(by Hans-Peter Oeri <hp at oeri.ch>):

 Correction... it seems that all recordings from ORF (Austria) are somehow
 buggy. I don't know what, the usual tools don't display anything unusual,
 but a plain conversion through project-x (with all streams intact) solves
 the problem, too.

 Still, bringing down the whole machine is bad(tm). AVFormatDecoder should
 probably just bail out, if something goes awry.

 As a workaround:
 - userjob to go over all recordings with project-x;
 - configure apache to block all preview images (of recordings which might
 be not yet "cleansed")
