Well, at least under .23, it breaks skipping completely.  There are 
several references of a lot of work that was backported to .24 on 
seeking.  To get the test movie back to where it was, I had to remove it 
and then add it back.

The command line to rebuild your seek table is:

mythcommflag --video /path/to/video/videoname.mkv --rebuild

The error I get when running mythfrontend -v playback,extra when jumping 
to chapter 4:
