Why do you think that?
It could be the data is only there because the encoder just couldn't
encode all of it at once, so just going through the loop once more
(if things are done correctly) might consume some/all of it still.
Except that I actually don't get the relation to mp3lame at all,
the issue to me looks like the muxer won't accept all data,
so I _think_ the right solution would be to remove the condition indeed,
but then call muxer_write_chunk once more with a "flush" flag or so to
force the remaining data out.
