mplex shortens MPEG1 video to under five minutes?

I'm trying to convert a long AVI file to two VCD's.  I have in the past done
this two ways:  with the mencvcd script from mplayer/mencoder, or with
avidemux.  Both worked.

Now, whichever I use, the VCD's produced (as bin/cue sets) are less than
five minutes long, cutting off in mid-video.  The actual length varies from
about 3:30 to 4:45.  Both avidemux and mencvcd split and transcode the video
and audio streams to mpa and mpv files, then use mplex to recombine them
into compliant MPEG format.  I deduce that mplex is what's failing, since
that's where they overlap.  I've checked the mpa/mpv files from mencoder and
they're the correct length and are complete.

Anyone have an idea why mplex would suddenly decide to truncate files?

	mencoder:	1:0.91-sarge0.1
