I never had such problems with the same settings, so I can't really
comment on that.
But I'd advise you to use MPlayer-pre6 or CVS and XviD 1.1 -beta2
(which features a somewhat better rate controller, at least on low
bitrate encodes).
You also have to know that your encoding options are really
suboptimal. You should activate trellis quantization (Ok it doesn't
show up on -pre5 docs, although it's supported, and that's exactly why
you should upgrade)
That's the combination that I use, and it works fine.
