I'm seeing a very noticeable delay between one programme finishing and
the next starting.  I've also seen this happen when I'm timeslipped, but
it happens at the point the programme finishes being broadcast, not at
the point the frontend transits from one programme to the another
(although there is always a slight pause at the point the frontend does
make the actual change too).

I've not measured the pauses, I've always thought that it was "just
Myth" and that it would get fixed at some point, however it does lower
the WAF significantly.
