My (only mildly informed) guess would be that it is reaching that point,
attempting to seek to 3.033303 seconds, and finding that the closest
point it can reach is 0 - so it starts over at the beginning. If that is
the cause, then I *think* that MEncoder, using -hr-edl-seek, should not
have this problem.
