"Overwrite?" dialog causes frozen video when capturing desktop video

1) Record some video of the desktop with a command like
ffmpeg -f x11grab -i $DISPLAY test.mkv.
2) Without deleting the video from (1), run that command again. This time it pauses with the question "File 'test.mkv' already exists. Overwrite ? [y/N]". Wait a few seconds before saying yes.
3) Play the resulting video in VLC.
BUG: The video begins with several seconds of stillness, corresponding to the amount of time you waited at the prompt in (2).
Repros on the release version (1:2.4.1-1, Arch Linux) and also when I build locally from master.
