I've sometimes had issues with RecordMyDesktop dropping the last part
of the video file. Workaround is to let it run about 1 1/2 times the amount
of time you actually need to record.  I was still using the Cinnamon DE 
when I last tested this, wonder if that was the issue? I know RecordMyDesktop
pops up warnings/statements when run with compiz, wonder if there were
worse issues in mutter/muffin?

If RecordMyDesktop gives good results in XFCE or otherwise with compositing
turned off, that might be the best workaround.  If it does I might want to test
it with every DE I have to measure how much of the video file it actually gets.
