Patch with fix

Some H.261 decoders expect the 'freeze picture release' flag to be set when
encoding an intra frame as a response to a reported decoding error, ref H.261
recommendation section 4.3.3. Typical scenario is video conferencing with
packet loss, where the decoder requests a new intra frame from the encoder.
Unless the 'freeze picture release' flag is set in the following intra frame
the decoder may be stuck outputting a frozen picture.

The attached patch sets this bit for all intra frames, also for those that
starts a GOP (and is not a response to a requested intra frame). This is done
for simplicity as I cannot think of a realistic use case where this makes a

This fixes an issue (as described above) seen with the video conferencing
product Tandberg MXP 1700.
