[mythtv] Is AvFormatDecoder::GetFrame(-1) broken?

It seems that AvFormatDecoder::GetFrame(-1) is not returning after the 
next frame but only after the entire file is read. This isn't the right 
behavior, is it? This affects for example 
NuppelVideoPlayer::RebuildSeekTable which does not display any progress 
messages because of it.

Assuming that this is wrong, I tried the following patch:

--- libs/libmythtv/avformatdecoder.cpp  (revision 8519)
+++ libs/libmythtv/avformatdecoder.cpp  (working copy)

                      if (onlyvideo < 0)
+                        gotvideo = 1;
                          ptr += pkt->size;
                          len -= pkt->size;

This fixes the problem, but I am not sure if it's right.
