I see this. I'm running relatively recent SVN trunk (not sure of the
exact revision). I started seeing it a couple of weeks ago but I don't
know when it started exactly (I try to avoid wmv when I can). I do
recall that it used to work (also with SVN trunk).

I just assumed (with absolutely no proof to back it up) that it was
from one of the ffmpeg resyncs. I just switched to mplayer for wmv
files and haven't really thought about it since. Doesn't help to
actually fix the problem, though. :)
