Well, the problem is that all of the seek information (which is normally
stored in the database) gets deleted when you hit 'X'  In mpeg4/rtjpeg
nuvs, this information is stored in the file, so that's not a problem,
but in mpeg2 streams, we store it in the database (I never liked this
solution, but whatever).  I am not sure what the best way to handle this
is.  I consider it a bug that the code doesn't work without a seek table
(i.e. it should build one or estimate one)...However, I could probably
write a little utility that would rebuild the seek-table in the case
where you want to restore your mpeg2 nuv.
