ok i've found the problem around -ss and 3-pass.
the _user_ has 2 choices:
1. do the first pass for the whole file, and use -ss for 2nd/3rd pases
2. do all the 3 passes with the same -ss value
it was originally written for 2., but was commited a patch later to seek in
frameno.avi too, it changed behaviour to 1.
also, -endpost ignores the -ss it seems.
