I just upgraded too.
I've noticed an occasional skip way into the next segment but for the
most part skip has been accurate.
Only difference I can see in my setup is I have Method= Blank frame
detection, I skip automatically, Merge short commercials is something
other than zero but I can't check it since my backend just crashed
again, and I'm not skipping blank frames.
Have you tried it without the skip blank frames?
