Same here. I'd also like to get the patch accepted. I'm open to
suggestions from anyone. I believe I've fulfilled all earlier requests
(let me know if I missed any).

If you want to forward me the IFOs, I can take a look at it.

Unfortunately, the code is not entirely precise, and it may be off by
1/2 a second. Some of this has to do with the VOBUs which are
generally in increments of .4 seconds. It could be that 1/2 a second
is causing the jump to slip from 15 to 14 seconds. If I look at the
IFOs, I can see whether or not it is an issue with the IFO or the
patch itself.
