 Recent change of behaviour

 I record the news daily
 A while later I watch the recording
 Skip over commercials, boring bits ...

 On skip to the current recording point mythfrontend exits !!!
 It used to skip upto the current point then play from that point

 All the cute setup buttons/options that purport to relate, do not have the
 desired effect

 The painful workaround is:
 skip till near end
 big skip (down-key) until recording is past the next bit to be watched
 <back><back> to the start of interesting stuff

 Daniel said:
 It's a bug. It may be related to NVP::IsNearEnd() not working
 as intended after the ProgramInfo refactor, or it may be related
 to the MythUI OSD merge, or it could possibly be something else.
 Please open a ticket with a script of how to reproduce plus
 a mythfrontend -v playback log of you performing that script.

 It does not fail running with -v all !!
 Behaviour is as it used to be.

 What else can I contribute ?
