I have no reason to believe that I've been mixing versions(!). Frontend &
backend are the same version, schema is 1160 but a rebuild still messes up
the seektable (but it *does* create one).

Months ago I had a similar problem with an earlier version of 0.20 and I was
told that the RebuildSeekTable code in mythcommflag had been updated and was
possibly buggy. I wouldn't mind debugging this problem but I need some
understanding of which frames result in an entry in the recordedseek and how
it is determined if the frame is a 'keyframe'(?) and how to keep track of
the time - which is why the table is there in the first place as far as I
can tell from what I was able to dig up on the net.
