Already having libmpeg2 I tried -vc mpeg12 but it seems that has 
suffered a different and possibly much older regression.

Depending on sample it either renders distorted or crashes - it does 
this on "goods". I didn't persue that.

I bisected ffmpeg - one skip for a build fail though, here's the log

There are only 'skip'ped commits left to test.
The first bad commit could be any of:
