[MPlayer-users] Segfault in mencoder when using -vop scale

I'm trying to encode a video clip to mpeg4, and I'd like to reduce the size 
from 696x488 (the active image area that I get from my TV card) to 640x448 or 
perhaps smaller (I'll see how the quality comes out and tweak as necessary).

mencoder works fine at full resolution:

mencoder -ovc lavc -lavcopts \
vb_qfactor=1.25:vb_qoffset=0.6:vmax_b_frames=1:vpass=1 -nosound \
-vop crop=696:488:20:44,pp=ci -o cardiff1-divx.avi cardiff1.avi

but when I put in a scale option:

mencoder -ovc lavc -lavcopts \
vb_qfactor=1.25:vb_qoffset=0.6:vmax_b_frames=1:vpass=1 -nosound \
-vop scale=640:448,crop=696:488:20:44,pp=ci -o cardiff1-divx.avi cardiff1.avi

I get the following output:

I compiled mplayer/mencoder with default CFLAGS (as supplied by configure) 
from the official mplayerhq.hu source distribution.

I've tried playing around with the format= option in case it was related to 
the codec's input format but this made no difference.

Has anyone else seen this / does anyone know a workaround?
