Output file incompatible with PS3 and a Panasonic TV when muxing h264 to mpegts

Description

I have a set of files that are identical in MediaInfo? except for bitrate. I'm trying to mux them to MPEG-TS using the following command:

ffmpeg -i input.mkv -c:a copy -v:a copy -vbsf h264_mp4toannexb -f mpegts output.mpeg

The strange thing is that one file in the set is coming out differently to the others, causing it to be incompatible with devices over DLNA (tested on a PS3 and a Panasonic TV).
MediaInfo? doesn't report any difference between the output files, either, except for bitrate.

Windows Explorer reads them differently, though; the file that does work is read by Windows to have the correct resolution but incorrect duration (1920x1080 and 18 hours long) and the one that does not work is reported by Windows to have the incorrect resolution but correct duration (720x480 and 10 seconds).
Windows is horrible at reading file info but the fact that it sees the two files very differently shows that there is a difference between them.
Windows does not show any difference between the input files; it correctly detects their duration and resolution.

I have uploaded 10 second samples of 2 of the files after verifying that the bug is reproducible via the samples.
Produces erroneous file: http://www.spirton.com/uploads/FFmpeg/20130430-1.mkv
Produces normal file: http://www.spirton.com/uploads/FFmpeg/20130430-2.mkv

I have tried several versions of FFmpeg, from the latest from Git master to versions several years old, with the same result each time.

Please provide the ffmpeg command line that produces the failing file together with the complete, uncut console output to make this a valid ticket.

FFmpeg command line:
ffmpeg -i input.mkv -c:a copy -v:a copy -vbsf h264_mp4toannexb -f mpegts output.mpeg

Is this problem also reproducible if you use -an or -vn or only if both audio and video are copied?

comment:4 Changed 4 years ago by SubJunk

The problem still happens with -an. I don't know how to check if it still happens with -vn since my methods of detection (playing on PS3, Panasonic TV, and checking resolution in Windows Explorer) rely on the presence of a video stream.

Here is the console output from -an:

ffmpeg -i input.mkv -an -v:a copy -vbsf h264_mp4toannexb -f mpegts output.mpeg
