I haven't received any other reports about similar issues yet. Here are a
couple of things you can/should check:

1. Try to narrow it down to a minimal set of files for which the loop
occurs. Ideally get it down to a single input file.

2. Try older versions of mkvtoolnix. If you don't have pre-compiled
binaries available then you can easily build your own Debian packages.
Follow the instructions available at
Replace the part that talks about the Git repository with downloading
older source code archives from

If you can narrow the problem down and are willing to upload the file(s)
in question somewhere (e.g. to my FTP server) then I can take a look at the
problem myself.


If Darl McBride was in charge, he'd probably make marriage
unconstitutional too, since clearly it de-emphasizes the commercial
nature of normal human interaction, and probably is a major impediment
to the commercial growth of prostitution. - Linus Torvalds
