For anyone keeping score, the "+svn20101128" is the important bit if 
you're looking for a tarball to do your own build.  It means the Debian 
build was sourced from ffmpeg trunk at r25838 (2010-11-28).  Somewhere 
from before that revision to when the 0.6 branch was cut at r23022 
(2010-05-05) is one or more changes that contain the secret sauce.  The 
stock version 0.6.1 won't work, nor apparently will stock 0.6.2, since 
changes from trunk haven't been applied.
