Please try latest CVS. The hanging on scrub bug (and some others) are
finally removed.

Sometimes even saying: "hey, please try your MP3-collection" makes me
find some bugs... Seriously: if you encounter any problems, please let me
know. The sequence editor in Blender never was the most stable thing on
earth and as you can see, I continuely fix bugs, even if they are not
added by myself but simply where in there just from the beginning...

They apply on focus out. When I made the patch, I thought I asked for
help on this topic.

The problem goes like this: if you choose in the FFMPEG-render dialogs
a preset (like "SVCD"), values are displayed only after you move the
mouse focus out of the window.

People with a deep understanding of the blender UI: PLEASE HELP!!!

Can you reproduce this?
Need a blend-file and maybe the specific MP3-file to find this one.

Sorry, I do not understand.

Why not?
