[theora-dev] Thusnelda - Floating point exception in encoder_toplevel.c:209

Hi all,

  I've been hitting the odd floating point exception errors using the 
new alpha encoders. They're encoding a live stream so I can't reproduce 
the crash on demand, and it might only happen once every few days so 
it's been fun trying to get a backtrace. The crash happens in a fairly 
scary block of code, I wouldn't have a clue where to begin trying to fix it!

Here's what gdb has to say about it:

#0  0x00007f8d0e3ce515 in oc_enc_select_qi (cpi=0x7f8d0c14f010,
     _qti=<value optimized out>, _trial=0) at enc/encoder_toplevel.c:209
209           rderiv=nframes[_qti]*KEY_RATIO[_qti]+drscale;

Any ideas?
