Yes. We really need to consolidate all the different parts of the 2 
different approaches for rebuilding the seektable into one location so 
we can get rid of the redundant (yet different--and, therefore, causing 
these issues) code and different available approaches (which cause user 
(and dev) confusion).  If anyone feels like working on such patches, 
they would be greatly appreciated.  Though it's on my TODO list, I don't 
expect to get to it soon.
