Hello Phil,

mencoder and mplayer have not the just same features, so such things as 
you found, happen.
I had the same problem once.
In early versions of mkvtoolnix there was a great bug with A/V sync. It 
was fixed
rather long time ago, however, it was used that time, and many files 
were produced.
When such problem appeared at first time, I succeeded in its resolution 
by dumping
PCM sound from matroska, oggencoding it, then making A/V-desynced AVI by
mencoder, then muxing ogg with old matroska to temp.mkv, then muxing new 
taking video from temp.mkv and audio from that ogg. All operations are 
done with
--disable-lacing option. Try to do it, or try to make something other, 
with the same
level of insanity, because it is a very strange problem.
