no, I didn't find a solution, but I figured out a couple of workarounds. 
It seems that "-of mpeg" simply does not work when normalizing frame rate, 
because all duplicate frames result in this error (I guess the block type 
of duplicate frames is not set correctly). So there are following 

1. Don't use "-of mpeg" when normalizing frame rate. If you need mpeg,
   convert the resulting avi back to mpeg (which of course causes some
   quality loss).

2. Buy a better videoconverter (Hauppauge sucks!) that has the "locked
   audio" feature, so the frame rate will be exact and don't need
