Version: 2:0.25.3+fixes.20121117.addfa54-0ubuntu0mythbuntu3

I am transcoding shows to X264 with handbrake, updating the recorded
table with the new file name ("update recorded set basename = '$file'
where basename = '$basename.mpg';"), and then running "mythcommflag
--rebuild  --chanid xxx --starttime xxx"

All works very well, except when playing back the recordings through the
frontend they stop playing about 50 seconds before the end of the
recording, losing part of the last scene of the show. Playing the file
through VLC is fine, the missing scene plays correctly up to the end and
the closing credits play.

The mythcommflag always displays these messages (without exception, on
every run):

Any ideas? Is the decoding error or the broken pipe in the mythcommflag
causing the last 50 seconds to be not played? Or is something else
causing it?
