I tried your patches on .23-fixes 24572. They did not apply cleanly,
but I massaged them a little and got them to apply. It is not clear to
me which version they are designed to patch against. I'm also not sure
if 8017 should be applied first. I did have it applied first.

In any case I found a couple of issues. For some mpeg2 sources (ATSC) it would
not seek, only giving the spinning circle when seeking. It would play from the
beginning just fine. For one h.264 source (HD-PVR), it could seek, but the sound
was out of sync. This is on fedora 12 with ffmpeg  0.5.1-33_git20100404.
