sounds reasonable - if i cannot describe it - how could you fix it.
i use a recording, because then it is repeatable

having said that - i'm finding it hard to see a pattern
maybe this is a red herring, but "seek to exact frame" seems to have an affect

if i start fast forwarding or rewinding, i not the picture on the screen at 
the start, then i move to a section of the recording with a completely 
different scene. then i stop going forward to backwards by hitting "enter" to 
play. for a brief period, the frame that i started with appears.

when i first reported it, the frame displayed used to be the first frame of 
the recording. i think that is no longer the case.

describing the problem is a little more complicated as when i move from fast 
forward to play, myth seems to jump back a variable amount, from none to 1 or 
4 seconds, so i have to keep two scenes in my head, the one i started with 
and the one i finish fast-fwd/rew on.

when editing, everything is frame perfect. pity that code cannot be used. is 
it fast enough?
