Since which itch was badly needed scratching, I thought
I could probably share the experience over.

The point is that with this patch I could sort of use
any2dvd to convert some AVI's to DVD. There are a lot
of problems into the code because any2DVD uses a lot of
external programs which can fail mysteriously. I don't
want to be misunderstood, any2dvd is an amazing
program, very nicely done and organized, but the sheer
complexity of what it tries to achieve is astonishing.

Any2dvd does a pretty descent job with my patch which
works around merely some bugs exposed due to bash
upgrades, changing the argument handling, and minor bug
fixing.

If there is sufficient interest I may turn this patch
to a series of smaller for inclusion. If not I hope
that anybody hits the archives with the same questions
like me, may find in this patch the solution.

    Patch looks good, bash upgrade stuff should be fixed in
    0.32 but will include most of the other changes also.
    Hopefully in a couple of weeks a revision version will be
    available, will just hold off until then to let any bugs
    flow through.
