I'm not sure that what you say applies to the sequencer. I tried the
blender2.8 branch, and while the pristine branch exposed the bug, after
applying my patch (which touches BKE_animsys_evaluate_all_animation()
only) the bug went away. Which indeed shows that that method is still in
If you like, you can try this .blend file:

Regardless of this bug, I notice a regression with 2.8 WRT the
sequencer: while in 2.7x I could scrub through the scene and see the
correct preview, under 2.8 the preview is almost never correct and it
only gets updated if I press the "Refresh sequencer" button.
