Encoding a (specific) video with an EDL and -hr-edl-seek gives a shorter video than expected.

Here's a test video from our regression test suite, which when trying to encode only a part through the use of an EDL gives a shorter video than expected. It works with an EDL like:

0.0 1.0 0
2.0 999999 0

Which gives me a video of 1s.
However the following EDL:

0.0 1.0 0
6.0 999999 0

Gives me only 3.4s of video. It starts at the right point, but stops too early.

Tested on OS X & Debian and also verified by others in #mplayer. It was
suggested there that it might be because of a variable framerate. Which is what
it looks like while actually playing the video in QT.

This might go hand in hand with this bug:
