Ok, that's a good data point to confirm that something is really broken 
for me. I just aborted after 1h 20 min for a 1 hour show on my 900MHz 

It gets to the point of "Cutting out commercials with avidemux2" and 
then ... nothing. No errors, no status messages, zip. If i check ps I 
can see mpeg2cut, Xvfb, and xvidemux2 running, with avidemux2 having a 
lot of CPU time. If i check top it shows avidemux2 at 98% CPU and 15m 
of memory, but will run like that pretty much forever unless I kill it.

Anyone seen these symptoms before? Or have any ideas?

I'm running FC2/PVR-350/Ath900, fwiw.
