Updating to Perian 1.1.3 broke Quick Look

Whenever I "Quick Look" a movie file now, the screen is just black with no audio or video. It seems to get the resolution right and the length, but you can't see or hear anything when quick looking.

Wondering if this was a known issue or if it's just me. I updated through the prefpane.

Try restarting Finder (force-quit).

I'm having this same issue since upgrading to 1.1.3. FWIW I'm running 10.5.6. Restarting the Finder works temporarily but the error returns after a while and after a restart.

The error explicitly says that it could be due to the Perian plug-in.

Any ideas how to resolve?
