I can use the help of everybody that can install a debug version of xine-lib 
(get xine-lib 1.1.8 and build and install with "make debug" and "make 
debug-install") and use a debugger.

/me goes and installs kdegames

Either #phonon or IRC or phonon-backends at

The avkode backend is far away from release quality (currently it doesn't even 
compile). It needs a lot more work to get the media format support up to par 
with xine.
