I assume this is not the bug that i sometimes get with 0.23-fixes that when
you have a commercial in widescreen format and the movei is in 4:3 and you
skip back past the aspect ratio change sometimes myth gets in a weird state
with only a single color screen.

Note that this only happens if your very unlucky and only when using the
skip forward/back to get past the commercial and then make the last few 5
sec adjustment so you get to the right position.

It also doesn’t happen all the time and when it does it is still possible to
bookmark the position and kill the frontend or X and start over.
So it's not completely locked up just not displaying anything use full.

Or is this the same bug?
