Have you checked to make sure you recordedmarkup (or recordedseek if you are
using a newer SVN version) table is clean?  Sounds possibly like a hosed up
seektable.  If the table is clean, does this happen when you use normal
jumps or are you using stickey keys for FFWD, or what?  If you set a bookmark,
and exit and restart the program, does Myth correctly jump to the bookmark
before starting playback?
