and one we haven't figured out, but that no one can reproduce, so we 
hoped it was fixed by another change:


software encoding code definitely doesn't get a lot of testing, anymore, 
since hardware encoders are generally easier, better, and no longer 
expensive, but figured I'd send these your way in case any of them might 

There are many other NUV-related tickets on the tracker, which could 
also be related (and/or fixed only in unstable), but these looked the 
most interesting for your symptoms.
