I'm sorry, I am getting terse.
It is just that I started with what I thought was a request for a minor
bug fix. I didn't like having an error message pop-up telling me all
my AVI's are corrupt when they aren't, and I like to be able to seek to
the previous place I was watching my video if I need to stop it for some
I started off with a simply patch of just a few lines. Now after
responding to fix each objection I have done six revisions of that
patch, and I'm still not any closer to having a bug fix included in the
I can certainly understand if someone else has different ideas and how
to solve the problem, and would be quite happy to see ANY fix that works
go into the next release. The only reason I wrote a patch to try to
fix the problem, is I saw several hundred open bugs in the bug tracking
system, and figured you guys needed more of a hand than just someone
reporting the problem.
