No.  VideoOutputXv has the same "bug", but that's how the code is supposed to 
be.  VideoOutputIvtv doesn't even have analogous code.

The problem is that VideoOutputQuartz::UpdatePauseFrame() isn't updating the 
scratch frame's frame number like it should, since it's using that style of 

This obviously is not a case for refactoring, since each output class can and 
does (XvMC and ivtv) need to handle this differently.
