As I play with the slider, I find there are about two "notches" where the
display will read 100%.  In other words, since the slider is more than
100 pixels wide altogether, there are some spots which represent a
fractional amount of one per cent (i.e. there is not a 1-to-1 mapping
between pixels and percentage).  Is it possible that you put the slider
back to an almost-but-not-quite 100% setting?

Incidentally, you can option-click on the slider to return it to 100%.

Some brief testing here with a short song shows no such variance in the
total output duration after screwing around with the slider, but I will
do some more detailed testing in case there is in fact some subtle
problem with the slider.
