mov timebase issue with large subtitle track

Description

Summary of the bug:

I was trying to mux a vtt file into an mov but getting this error:

FATAL error, file duration too long for timebase, this file will not be
playable with QuickTime. Choose a different timebase with -video_track_timescale or a different container format

After trying the timescale suggestion, I realized that the issue is not about the video track but about the subtitle track. There's a command to generate the error below. AFAICT there's no subtitle_track_timescale and I'd rather stick with mov in this case.

How to reproduce:

ffmpeg -i test.vtt -map 0:s -c:s mov_text -tag:s:s:0 tx3g test.mov
