The (only) problem is that while posting the command 
line is necessary, it is not sufficient.

And if you had not cut the console output, everybody 
on the ffmpeg-user list would have understood the 
problem, and you would have received help (earlier).

You somehow forgot to tell that the problem is not 
reproducible with small resolutions (64x64 or 32x32).

I did;-)
(Yes, I wasn't much clearer than you.)

Concerning that you are unhappy about the tone I use:
When I thought to myself that you completely failed 
to provide the necessary information that allows us 
to help you, I decided not to comment (after all I 
am not a native speaker and other people may 
understand you better). Since that, several people 
(who I don't even really know) have written that 
you in fact did not provide enough information so 
I am quite confident that my reaction was mostly 

And claiming here that bugs in FFmpeg are not 
fixed is something that I take quite personally.
