Thanks for testing but it works for me.

My first guess would be that you skipped or FFWD from 5 to 9 mins. If 
so, then that could be expected behaviour as the last-played mark isn't 
written for the first 30 secs real-time (not video-time) of playback.

That's a feature of the original #11713. Whilst I'm not sure just how 
useful it is in the context of this patch, I also didn't see a need to 
change it.

If you resumed at 5 min and just let it play for 4 min, then that is a bug.
