Problem with flv module in Ubuntu

I have installed Nginx from source (tried both version 0.7.47 and
0.7.61) on an Ubuntu Hardy 64-bit machine, and in both cases, the flv
module does not work. I am using the JW Player to stream the files and
it only sends one query string parameter, which is what is supposed to
work with Nginx's FLV module.

When I try seeking, I get this response:

2009/07/14 18:29:40 [info] 31340#0: *644 client closed prematurely
connection while sending response to client, client:,
server: xxxxxx, request: "GET /content/b/6/88860.flv?start=10482045
HTTP/1.1", host: "xxxxxx"

The config file is:

location ~* ^.+.(flv)$ {
        root             /opt/www/html;
        gzip            off;
        expires       30d;
        limit_rate 500k;

The configure information is:

nginx version: nginx/0.7.47
built by gcc 4.2.4 (Ubuntu 4.2.4-1ubuntu3)
configure arguments: --with-http_flv_module --prefix=/usr/local
--with-http_gzip_static_module --with-poll_module
--with-http_secure_link_module --with-http_stub_status_module

Any help would be much appreciated!
