There seems to be a real problem, but isn't related to ffmpeg.

While this
  gst-launch playbin "uri=file://$PWD/MPEG4PART2+MP3.avi"
stops at "Pipeline is PREROLLING ..."

I can play the same file with
  gst-launch filesrc location="MPEG4PART2+MP3.avi" ! avidemux name=demux
  demux.video_00 ! queue ! ffdec_mpeg4 ! xvimagesink demux.audio_00 ! queue !
  flump3dec ! alsasink

And seems to be easily reproducible:
