Interesting.  I like the tool that you used for that.

But, trying that out swung me back too far the other way.  Now, the video gets behind what myth thinks is the current position, so seeking back actually skips me forward.  It's not as far as before, though.  There are a few messages in the -v playback logs about the video being behind the audio.
