OK.  This is avidemux2 crashing on your audio stream, obviously.  Now what's
causing that...  Hmmm.

I guess the first thing to ask: what version of avidemux2?  2.0.26 has some
known issues with MPEG2 stuff, so if that's your revision, upgrade to 2.0.28
or downgrade to 2.0.24 and try again :)

If you could come on IRC tonight, I might be able to do some online
troubleshooting with you.  It's awefully hard to do over email as it can take
several iterations.
