I see something else that might be related to this when trying to edit
HD dvb-t2 recordings. If I try to resume play from a point a few
minutes from the end it just exits. If I have a cut defined earlier it
will resume as expected and play to the end. I haven't really tried to
define the exact circumstances yet. And I opened a ticket some time ago
about previewgen assuming a 30fps framerate. That got won'tfixed. It's
unimportant but perhaps related, too.
