I see why it works for nuv's.
recordingHasPositionMap does not represent partial info for nuppeldecoder 
but does for avformatdecoder and ivtvdecoder.
there is still a bit of a problem for db maps which arent complete. perhaps 
some way of using the partial info or continuing in seektable build mode if 
it goes past the end of the existing info. but that only works if you dont 
seek and create holes.
