FWIW playback from last played position works ok for me, in current 

But the end marker in the cutlist editor has a problem:  go to end (Page 
Down) goes to frame n, step back from that and forward again (left, 
right arrows) goes to n-m, then n+1, and repeated stepping *forward* 
from there alternates between n-m and n+1.
