I have an error with 1gb videofile and avconv

Application provided invalid, non monotonically increasing 
dts to muxer in stream 1: 177873 >= 177849
av_interleaved_write_frame(): Invalid argument

I use

avconv -i /root/video/112-1.wmv -y -strict experimental -b:v 1800K -ss 00:00:10 -c:v libx264  -c:a libfaac -ar 44100 -ac 1 -b:a 128k -threads 0 -maxrate 1850k -bufsize 1000k -vf "scale=w=1280:h=720, drawtext=fontfile=FreeSans.ttf:text='site.com':fontcolor=white@1.0:fontsize=20:x=1130:y=695" /root/converted/112-1.wmv

Here is my log http://pastebin.com/BwBmVMDs

I tried to suppress b-frames by adding -bf 0 option, but also same error.

How can I avoid this error?
