This now seems to have been fixed in current master (66531c75d),
although as a consequence the correct display dimensions are also no
longer carried through....

Having gone back over a year I have still not found a version where the
creation time is correctly inserted on .mov creation. FFprobe only ever
reports this metadata when the original file was also a mov that
contained that information, so its seems to be being blindly passed on
if it exists.

I have created ticket #1439
