I think you've linked to the wrong bugreport..

Anyway, I'm also encountering this assertion error on a fully updated rawhide
system. However, I'm not encountering it with mplayer, but with artsd (kde3)
which gets started when using k3b

Gaak. You're right. Typo - it's a dup of bug #453908, not 433...
Comment 4 Hans de Goede 2008-07-25 06:30:15 EDT

I'm seeing this too and I agree this is a dup of bug 453908, closing as such.
I'll send Lennert a personal mail about this as he doesn't watch bugzilla too
