mythtranscode only sends first frame when using cutlists

After fixing the parameter issue with --fifodir, I noticed that mythtranscode seems to run forever, but with no errors. After a couple of test encodes, I've determined that when using --fifodir (and possibly other times), it only ever inserts the first frame into the buffer, despite the fact that it reports incrementing frame numbers. It does not stop when it reaches the maximum number of frames, but just keeps going on forever.

Confirmed that this is broken after [16790].. unfortunately, so many other issues (like the aforementioned --fifodir problem) were also introduced, that it's impossible to know if [16790] specifically, or something afterward, is causing this particular problem.

Just got some more info from clev in IRC... This problem affects more than just fifodir usage, and appears whenever transcoding something with a cutlist. I've confirmed that fifodir encodes work fine if the cutlist is disabled.
