this still doesn't prove that the decoder is to blame (it may well be). 
it shows that the upper layers of wine work "correctly" with indeo 
decoder. Moreover, the point I question the most is the way the decoder 
(mpglib) is integrated into winemp3, which is potentially the core of 
the issue (if any)
