[Ardour-Users] Strange transport problem - can anyone reproduce?

I upgraded to svn 3695 (a week or two ago) since when, I've noticed a very
strange problem which wasn't there before.  I just wondered if anyone else
might have seen this...?

Create (or load) a session starting at about 10 hours timecode and lasting
around 20-30 minutes.  Position the replay cursor at the start of the
session (10:00:00:00) and press 'play'.  The cursor starts moving forward
and the audio plays.  When it gets to the RHS of the play window, the window
repositions (as expected), cursor moves to the LHS and the whole process

However.... this only happens for a maximum of 2 screen updates.  When the
play cursor reaches the RHS again, the timeline jumps to about 20 minutes
timecode (00:20:00:00) and the screen stops updating.  However, the audio
keeps on playing and the time clocks update correctly.

I did a full rebuild and re-installation but it didn't fix the problem but
 this is such bizarre behaviour that I'm surprised no-one's mentioned
it.  It's 100% reproduceable on my system but I'm assuming that
somebody else would have reported it if they'd encountered it..
