Which version?

Version 0.28 results below. Maybe things have changed.

I see the total time increase, and the progress bar shrinks in
proportion to the total. That seems ok to me.

Hit left arrow, screen looks the same (but has actually reversed a frame
or so). On-screen display fades away.

But I'm not sure what you mean by "the image changes to a freeze frame
of the current live time". It you pause at say, 30 seconds, that's the
image that should stay on the screen.

For me, it's good that the OSD disappears, because there's often
something on that part of the screen that I want to see.

Press left or right arrow again and the OSD reappears briefly. The
"frozen" time should reappear and be what it was when paused, but the
total time will have increased.
