Handbrake uses a new/different mkv muxing library which seems to cause
problems with most other programs, including at least vlc and myth. I
tend to remux with mkvmerge following the encode to get seeking
working properly elsewhere.

That said I do still have problems, with myth seemingly losing track
of the correct aspect ratio of h264 video.
