Having looked a little closer at potential causes for this problem, it
looks like my bugfix yesterday (which I thought at the time was 
inconsequential and unlikely to ever have any important effect) is actually
relevent here - it could well have caused BIG memory leaks in certain 
cases when reencoding (cases that my normal tests happened not to catch,
I guess). 

I think things should be ok now, and I'm running a full reencoder test
locally at the moment.
