regarding config: partitions, directpred (it should be direct-pred), 
wpredp are x264 options and ffserver doesn't send them to ffmpeg that 
serves a stream. Any private option for any codec is not supported yet. 
They have no meaning and now they are treated as errors. (in near future 
I will add posibility to set them)

Also VideoGopSize is as alias for AVOptionVideo g

But this doesn't cause the issue anyway.

I noticed that commenting out
VideoSize 1280x720
reduces bitrate back to 1500kbit/s which is correct.

Why setting VideoSize has such strange effect - I dont know.
I just checked ffserver and ffm format and there is everything ok with 
these width and height.
