Wouldn't the correct fix be to fix the places where duration is *not*

Writing the track duration without taking into account the actual
packet duration of the last packet is just wrong. That's not the
track's duration, and is in fact very problematic for low frame
rate files, such a slide shows; QuickTime will cut off at the
end of the media and track duration, dropping possibly a whole
slide, for example.
