Good guess ;-)  Yes, the file ended up being only 400MB instead of ~600MB, so 
I think that's what happened.  The encode has finished now and I just created 
the .mkv file and it appears to work perfectly.  mplayer was also playing the 
AVI fine so I didn't think I'd run into any problems.

I wonder whether it's worth printing a message to the effect of "the input 
file is incomplete, you may encounter problems"?  Although it might not be 
worth going to the trouble of doing that, if it rarely happens.
