I don't think FFmpeg is able to produce an output file that 
does not start with a keyframe (when encoding which is what 
you do above).
In other words: I am 100% sure your output file starts with 
a keyframe.

Is your output file out-of-sync if you play with vlc, ffplay, 
MPlayer or QuickTime? (If it plays out-of-sync with 
QuickTime, please also test the others.)
