It's possible that this might be related to something I've seen in a
non-myth context...

My sis has jumped on the "burn SVCD's of your favorite shows off the
net" bandwagon... and I note that many of them have 5 real frames
followed by a duplicate frame.
I gather that most of them are US- or Canada-wildfeed captures, and I'd
*expect* that they'd be NTSC-M (525/60), but that feels like a 25/30
problem to me.  She doesn't notice the jumpiness at all; it drives me
clean up a wall.
