[gst-devel] deadlock (?) while transcoding DVD

I'm running the following command to try and transcode a DVD to ogg vorbis/theora:

    gst-launch-0.8 dvdreadsrc title=0 device=/dev/hdc ! dvddemux name=demux { oggmux name=mux ! filesink location=/home/roland/x2.ogg { demux.video_00 ! queue ! progressreport name=video ! mpeg2dec ! ffmpegcolorspace ! gdkpixbufscale method=3 ! video/x-raw-rgb,width=540,height=360 ! ffmpegcolorspace ! theoraenc quality=25 ! queue ! mux. } { demux.audio_00 ! queue ! progressreport name=audio ! a52dec ! audioconvert ! rawvorbisenc ! queue ! mux. } }

However, after about 2 minutes it gets stuck and stops making
progress.  This is completely repeatable and always occurs after
writing exactly 1739149 bytes to the output file.

This is with gstreamer 0.8.9/gstreamer plugins 0.8.7 from an
up-to-date (as of Feb 10 2005) Ubuntu Hoary system.

Am I doing something wrong setting up this pipeline?
