I did not give up and still digging to hunt that bug (-mbd bits). Im
however kinda miss the basics, but Im not discouraged.

What I found:
using "-me zero", is worst than using "-me x1".
The more B frames I am using, the less green blocks I get. If B frame
count is high (> 8) I get no artefacts at all.

I reread the specs and I found out that:  Motion vectors for chrominance components
The motion vectors calculated in the previous clauses refer to the
luminance component where:
          vector[r][s][t] = vector'[r][s][t]   (for all r, s and t)
For each of the two chrominance components the motion vectors shall be
scaled as follows:
                  vector[r][s][0] = vector'[r][s][0] / 2;
                  vector[r][s][1] = vector'[r][s][1] / 2;
                  vector[r][s][0] = vector'[r][s][0] / 2;
                  vector[r][s][1] = vector'[r][s][1];

Michael, you previously replied that motion estimation did not take
chroma in count.
The question might be stupid but, does that mean that motion vectors for
chroma component are set to 0,
or just copied from luma ? Does motion vectors needs to be adjusted in
the actual code ?
