I am using the vlc-0.4.6 released version so I am looking at different
versions of the files (input_ext-dec.c version 1.31 and input_dec.c
version 1.36) but I think I got your intention with the following patch:

--- input_ext-dec.c.dist        Thu Nov 14 00:02:30 2002
+++ input_ext-dec.c     Tue Nov 26 20:09:31 2002

-            if( p_fifo->p_first == NULL )
+            while( p_fifo->p_first == NULL )
                 /* No PES in the FIFO. p_last is no longer valid. */
                 p_fifo->pp_last = &p_fifo->p_first;

And it does indeed avoid the crash. I get lots of stuttering in sound
and image. Since I see a call to vlc_cond_wait() I think this indeed
indicates I have a thread synchronisation problem. I'll look into that.
