Might be completely unrelated to this problem, but I had exactly this experience quite some time ago with the fps filter.

Easy to reproduce eample:

wget https://i.imgur.com/Cj7B35C.jpg
echo -e "file 'Cj7B35C.jpg'\nduration 120\nfile 'Cj7B35C.jpg'\nduration 120" > concat.txt
fmpeg -f concat -i concat.txt -c:v ffv1 -vf fps=25 test.mkv

(This needs more than 9GB RAM on my machine.)
