Mediatomb crashes scanning directory

  • Hi,

    today mediatomb started crashing on my system.
    I am running Sabayon Linux with the latest updates, but I am not sure if the problem comes from this or a former update as mediatomb has not been restarted for some time.

    In the logfile I get this error:

    mediatomb[12371] general protection ip:7fd86057105c sp:7fd853f76a88 error:0 in libavutil.so.51.15.0[7fd860563000+1b000]
    

    When cleaning out the config files and starting mediatomb for the first time it works until it starts to scan the direcories.
    When running it from console with -D I get this last line:

    2011-12-20 13:37:03   DEBUG: [../src/metadata/ffmpeg_handler.cc:252] fillMetadata(): Running ffmpeg handler on /data/media/video/video.avi
    Segmentation fault
    

    This seems to be the first call of ffmpeg_handler.

    The versions of the (probably) important packages are:
    net-misc/mediatomb-0.12.1
    media-video/libav-0.8_pre20111116

    Any idea where the problem is coming from and how it could be solved?

    Thanks in advance
