Probably it encodes multiple packets per frame then. This is what these fields 
are for, according to the comment above them. But despite setting full_frame=0, 
ff_rv10_encode_picture_header always writes 0 for mb_x and mb_y, i.e. it encodes 
a full frame.
So maybe a better fix would be to set full_frame=1?

As said I think the correct way would be to encode multiple packets per frame, 
which is currently not supported in FFmpeg.

So would you prefer using avpriv_report_missing_feature, returning an error and 
checking the return value in libavcodec/mpegvideo_enc.c?
