Bug Description

Conversion to .m4a silently fails 100% of the time.

Running the convert-2m4a.sh script manually reveals this error message in conversion.log:

output file exists, use --overwrite option

Apparently gtkpod's conversion script is running faac on an already-existing output file, which causes faac to fail since version 1.29.5, when the --overwrite option was introduced.

Adding --overwrite to ENCODER_OPTS fixes the problem. (This might break compatibility with faac versions more than three years old.) Patch attached.

(I tried adding it the normal way, but Launchpad doesn't seem to recognize sourceforge bug reports.)
