It happens if the qscale is too low, especially 1 but also sometimes
with q=2. Better codecs like true mpeg4 have ways to deal with the
overflows (e.g. adaptive quantization raising the q for individual
macroblocks) but for msmpeg4 (aka divx3) you either need to accept the
overflows and the glitches that come with them or else use qmin=3.
