Don't set up Writer etc. until the job is run. This means that jobs queued in the batch converter don't start too early; e.g. if you add the same job twice the check of the existing video won't start on the second job until the first is complete.

There's a new test release 2.11.1 out. Do test it, but be aware that there have been lots of internal changes so stability has probably taken a hit.

I'm planning to tweak the version numbering a bit from now on: even minor versions will indicate ‘stable’ branches and odd minor versions will indicate ‘unstable’ — so 2.11.x is on unstable and I will turn it into 2.12.0 when it has calmed down a bit.
