Without looking at the release notes, my guess would be that the 
definition of what --tvmode=vgood actually means has varied 
periodically. Dinky has a habit of tinkering around with things, as we 
saw recently with the merging of higher quality audio into the video 
files, then going back on that once it became evident that there were 
sync problems.
