Unless you're working on a patch for this, can you give a little bit
more info on this so that someone else can take a look?  I looked at
the current code in xine where we grabbed this file from and there
have been a lot of changes since the version we are using. I'm
sure some of those are bugs, but it's too late to get an updated
version into 0.22, but we could integrate a bugfix for this
particular issue if we have one.
