Decodebin and caps in 0.11

I'm having problems with getting caps information in decodebin's
pad-added callback.

During the callback the decode bin has no caps set.

The decoder (ffmpegdec) did not send setcaps event because the chain
method has not been invoked before the pad-added callback.

It looks like decodebin is blocking the pipeline, but why is it
blocking it before the decoder element?

Kind regards,
