Thumbs down Mencoder Seg fault

When I try using mencoder I get a seg fault. Not sure what could be causing this. I have the win32codecs installed and am trying to encode an indeo5 avi to flv.

mencoder "b[25].avi" -of lavf -oac lavc -ovc lavc -af lavcresample=22050 -lavfopts i_certify_that_my_video_stream_does_not_use_b_frames -mc 0 -lavcopts vcodec=flv:keyint=15:mbd=2:mv0:trell:v4mv:cbp:last_pred=3: predia=2: dia=2:cmp=2:subcmp=2: preme=2:vbitrate=700 -vf scale=528:297,harddup -ofps 30 -o "testOut.flv"

** MUXER_LAVF *****************************************************************
You have certified that your video stream does not contain B frames.
REMEMBER: MEncoder's libavformat muxing is presently broken and will generate
INCORRECT files in the presence of B frames. Moreover, due to bugs MPlayer
will play these INCORRECT files as if nothing were wrong!
OK, exit

Segmentation fault

Any Ideas?
