[mythtv-users] MythVideo - Play Next works intermittently

I have a large collection of home videos, and recently switched from
the "File Browse mode" to using the database to store video info.  I
wrote a custom database trigger that will automatically set the
childid field so that each video should play in succession.

This all seems to work fine if I start a video and let it play - each
plays in succession without stopping.
However, I've noticed the next video fails to play (as in I'm returned
to the video list) in the following cases:

1) a bookmark was set on the initial video selected.  Selecting either
"Play from bookmark" or "Play from beginning" has the same result in
that the next video is not played
2) If I jump ahead to the end of current video (which seems to put me
3 seconds ahead of the end), the next fails to play.  If I skip to the
end, then skip back 10 seconds, and let it reach the end itself, the
next video plays successfully

Anyone else notice these issues?
