still there. What (additional) issues came up?

There was and are still serious seeking issues caused by the stupid 
ffmpeg seeking code within ffmpeg, which is a) DTS based and b) generally 
assumes more or less a CBR stream on a lot of formats (especially 
prominent ones like MPEGTS streams (HDV)) and will fail horribly, if that 
assumption doesn't hold. (In the case of HDV, dropouts on the tape, which 
are pretty common, are sufficient to make it fail...)

I've finished a seperate indexer, that addresses that problem and builds 
proxies in parallel. I'll commit, when I've found all the bugs in my new code...

Besides that, I don't know of any new issues (I use a very current, ffmpeg 
GIT Feb 19 2011 myself).
