Hmm ... i would tend to think that the encoding would start smoother if
there were alredy a couple of frame in the buffer. But if the encoding
start too late you may be in trouble.
Then i would think that the fix i did is the right thing to do. Anybody
is against commiting that ?

Everything is controlled by a small evil group
to which, unfortunately, no one we know belongs.
