For the record, I have this problem on most of my ripped DVD's (I  
always use "perfect") as well. I just use xine instead, but am trying  
the rebuild on all of them now. On some of the DVD's, the seek works  
fine for the first 10 minutes or so and then when I try to seek it  
goes to the beginning of the video.
