No, this is totally wrong. When using the 3pass mode, -oac copy copies
the audio encoded in pass0 from frameno.avi to your output file. If
you're going to reencode mp3 in all 3 passes, there's absolutely no
point in doing pass0 at all!!

BTW, send unified diffs in the future (diff -u). The default diff mode
is unreadable.

BTW2, 3pass mode is buggy and should not be used unless you really
know what you're doing and you're sure you won't trigger one of the
bugs! :)
