I am using ffmpeg version N-47062-g26c531c

Sometimes ffmpeg.exe does not terminate and will sit there using 100% CPU
until manually 'killed'. I am using trying to implement the -timelimit
switch to help with this, but it does not seem to be having any affect.

Here is the full command I am using to test with:

"C:\Program Files\ffmpeg\bin\ffmpeg.exe"  -y -timelimit 3 -loop 1 -r 0.1 -i
image.jpg -i mp3.mp3 -c:v libx264 -preset ultrafast -crf 18 -tune
stillimage -c:a copy -t 351 video.mp4 -threads 1 -report

Any ideas why it is not exiting after 3 seconds?
