I now managed to reproduce the problem, and indeed confirms that there is a 
real problem. However, this patch does not fix it because the issue is not 
specific to HLS.

I would suggest either:
1) removing concat completely, or
2) ignoring the concat locator string, and passing the list of concatenated 
URIs through AV options (similarly to what VLC does).
