[Matroska-devel] Crash while seeking matroska file

Hi people,

I don't know if this is the right place to ask.

I have dumped a RV40/rm stream that I would like to playback from disk. 
I have remultiplexed the file into a mkv file with mmg and mkvmerge, and 
play it back with mplayer. The playback crashes as soon as I try to seek 
forward in the file. I don't know if this is a mplayer problem, a codec 
problem, a matroska problem, if this is because the file originally had 
to be streamed with no seek, or whatever. I just expected mkvmerge to 
create the correct time codes to seek in the file.

Also there are no problem with standard videos (I mean files that don't 
come from streams).

What do you think about this ?

My configuration :
# uname -a
Linux kanard 2.6.22-14-generic #1 SMP Tue Dec 18 08:02:57 UTC 2007 i686 

# mplayer
MPlayer 1.0rc2-4.1.3 (C) 2000-2007 MPlayer Team

CPUflags:  MMX: 1 MMX2: 1 3DNow: 0 3DNow2: 0 SSE: 1 SSE2: 1
Compiled with runtime CPU detection.

# mkvmerge --version
mkvmerge v2.0.2 ('You're My Flame') built on Jul  3 2007 05:59:48

Thank you for advice,
Best regards,
