Comment (by mdean):

 For what it's worth, it seems it's not actually a deadlock when seeking to
 the end in edit mode, but the player actually plays all the frames from
 the current point until the end of the recording after the message:
 2010-08-30 19:47:29.897 Dec: ConditionallyUpdatePosMap: Still not enough
 info in positionMap after sync,
                         we need frame 107668 but highest we have is
 107640. Will attempt to seek frame-by-frame
 So, if you're close to the end, it will recover before too long--delay is
 dependent on your starting point and the duration of the recording.  I
 don't know if it's possible to seek to the last-known key frame, and
 /then/ play to the end rather than seeking from current position, but it
 seems that doing so would be faster.

 (And, FWIW, the invalid log messages from comment:3 are now fixed.)
