Playback of any video file (I tested avi with Xvid, mkv with H.264 and mpeg2 PS/TS) is delayed for almost two seconds, when option "fontconfig" is activated. The delay is such that mplayer starts playback with audio, but not video. It's playing for 0.3-0.4 sec, then pause, then retry, pause again. In the third try (mostly) it finally starts playback of audio/video.
When disabling fontconfig all starts fine. The bug also disappears when removing the font directories from "fonts.conf", but then I still can't use fontconfig features.
Error is independet from a subtitle track. It occurs on all published revisions since 27323 including the latest 27811. I can say this bug does not occur with the same versions until two days ago. Strange.
