??? What does stop? mencoder? ogmmerge?

If you want to avoid that you can do a '4 pass encoding':

1. encode audio with mp3lame into frameno.avi
2. and 3. do the video encoding just like always
4. extract the audio with mplayer into pcm, e.g. mplayer -ao pcm
-aofile audio.wav -vo null -vc dummy -dvd-device ... -dvd 1

This way no AVI should be larger than 2Gb.  Of course encoding to MP3
takes its time.
