Have you tried also forcing the actual frame rate with -r ?  I had an 
issue with ffmpeg sometimes writing the wrong frame base into the 
timecode atom unless I specified the rate - see thread titled "Copying 
h264 Quicktimes makes insane timecode", perhaps it could be related.

Worth a quick try anyway.
