I couldn't reproduce. Did a clean install of the latest binaries, but
at the default settings (without actually touching the setting dialogs
at all) the file you referred to encodes fine. (Other issue is that
the resulting video encoded at full 720p resolution is hardly playable
with QuickTime as the data is highly fragmented, but that's a material
for a separate post).

Can you let me know what (sound) encoding settings did you use?
