 In Ticket #8788 from yesterday I posted an enhancement that now allows
 mencoder jobs to show an eta while in progress.

 While doing some live environment work last night I found a bug in the
 code related to the timer handling (specifically the death timer), I
 believe this is related to the total frames count values being mismatched
 in what mythtranscode expects and what the file seems to have, I will do
 some further investigation to get to the bottom of it.

 The bug manifests as either a mythtranscode died early error on a single
 pass or a crash in a two pass nuvexport --mencoder job.

 To apply a temporary fix I have adjusted the death watch timer in this
 attached patch until I can fully understand what's causing the bug.
