In the bad file was there any other things being tosed out when it magically worked.  Sorry for the rain, but glad you'll be getting additional data points to test.  

What I did was very slack -sorry

Select a movie
play some seconds
skip forward a few times
<up><up> to 1 min
<rt><rt> - crash

mythffprobe listed lots of errors

OK bizare:

I started with a 1080 h264 movie
mythffprobe showed lots of errors
using your JP fixes I cut the movie, and spliced it together with my h264cut script.

I fiddled (there is that word again, I played around) with handbrake, shotcut to try fixing the errors.

My cut and trancoded video has no errors.
My original movie has no errors. What did I do? In particular I've been trying in vain to get a core dump using the "original" movie that no longer has errors !!!

OK valid conclusion "Damaged recording causes core dump"
I shall make some recordings in the rain and try to cause a core dump on the morrow. I'll report what happens.
