It can only be killed with kill -9. The CPU load is at ~100%.
I located the problem at line ~2067 of file libmpdemux/muxer_mpeg.c. I looked into the file, there is an endless loop (while(1) ) that never ends for the expression s->wf->wFormatTag of value 255.

The problem should be present on any platform/OS. An ugly workaround is to reencode audio instead of copying it.

Fixed in SVN r32705.
Not that using -fafmttag to specify a more "usual" tag should be a work-around without re-encoding.
