That's not out of phase, but reversed field dominance. And it's not a
kernel bug (unless the field dominance is mislabelled), just
misinterpretation by the app which is assuming top-field-first.
Out of phase capture of 2:2 pulldown:
A A B B C C D D E E F F G G
| | | | | | |
(lines indicate how the fields are paired in captured pseudo-frames)
Reversed field dominance (video or post-pulldown film):
B A D C F E H G J I (video)
B A C B D C E D F E (film)
