 (In [26486]) Fix seeking to near the end of an in progress recording.

 We were hitting an infinite loop when frame by frame seeking as the
 position map wasn't actually getting updated - hence we were never going
 to break out of the seek loop for a file that didn't have an end (i.e.
 in progress).

 I'm not sure whether this is a long standing issue that has been exposed
 or a subtle side effect of the thread changes in MythPlayer.

 Closes #8842 - though I'll also later add some sort of debug check to
 identify any other cases that trigger this condition.
