In order to determine whether the current cluster needs to be closed
because of the limits on cluster-size and cluster-time,
mkv_write_packet() would first get the size of the current cluster via
applying avio_tell() on the dynamic buffer holding the current cluster.
It did this without checking whether there is an open cluster right now,
so that avio_tell() returned AVERROR(EINVAL) which worked as expected
because the return value was put into a signed type (the call was

This is not good as it relied on avio_tell() (or actually, avio_seek())
to handle the case of an inexistent AVIOContext gracefully.

Fixing this is easy: Only check if a cluster needs to be closed if a
cluster is in fact open.

Essentially the same happened with the tags in mkv_write_trailer(). It
has been fixed, too.

I wonder whether we should rather check mkv->cluster_bc instead of
mkv->cluster_pos != -1. I would have made a commit to do so if I
understood this avio_write_marker stuff that seems be broken better (the
check below should probably be mkv->cluster_pos != -1 instead of != 0).

If opening a cluster fails, mkv->cluster_pos is still set; such problems
would be automatically fixed by such a switch.
