That is expected, the code before set the codec time base, which if it ever
was used, at least was not used recently by FFmpeg.
It now sets the stream time base, which works.
There is a risk (I did not investigate) that it breaks some variable frame rate
content, however I think mencoder can’t handle that anyway.
