Nope, no errors at all from the frontend, at least without turning on 
some version of verbose.

When I said that moving to the prev frame, actually moves to the next 
frame, that should have been moves forward *two* frames.

JUMPing to the previous cutpoint works as long as the current position 
is not a cutpoint.  Makes me think that when trying to JUMP to the 
previous cutpoint, it is actually moving a couple of frames forward, 
then seeking backwards for the cutpoint -- so it ends up at the same place.

The problem is definitely with playback, and not recording.  I recorded 
some shows tonight using the latest CVS.  I have installed versions of 
the CVS on my frontend machine going back to November 13th which exhibit 
the problem.  If I go back to November 10th, on my frontend machine, the 
problem goes away.  So, somewhere between the 10th and the 13th, this 
problem was introduced.  I will install CVS versions from the 11th and 
12th to try and narrow down the time frame.

Isaac, thanks for looking at this.
