Mad DTS jumps are observed sometimes at h264 encoder output

mfxBitstream::DecodeTimeStamp of some encoded frames is ~22 minutes back from it's expected value.
It occurs under certain GopPicSize/GopRefDist/NumRefFrame/IdrInterval/PicStruct encoder initialization combinations.

For example, GopPicSize = 35, GopRefDist = 4, NumRefFrame = 3, IdrInterval = 1, progressive:
out frame 70, dts is incorrect by -1310.720 seconds;
out frame 140, dts is incorrect by -1310.720 seconds;
out frame 210, dts is incorrect by -1310.720 seconds;
out frame 280, dts is incorrect by -1310.720 seconds;
etc.

And more. Number of encoded frames is less than the number of input frames under certain initialization combinations (latter combinations don't correlate with dts-jump combinations).
