This looks like a dup of bug #433908, or that one is a dup of this one - in any
case, mplayer is hitting the same assert I was...

I think you've linked to the wrong bugreport..

Anyway, I'm also encountering this assertion error on a fully updated rawhide
system. However, I'm not encountering it with mplayer, but with artsd (kde3)
which gets started when using k3b

Gaak. You're right. Typo - it's a dup of bug #453908, not 433...

Comment 4 Hans de Goede 2008-07-25 10:30:15 UTC

I'm seeing this too and I agree this is a dup of bug 453908, closing as such.
I'll send Lennert a personal mail about this as he doesn't watch bugzilla too
