My case is a bit weird as I am reading frames of metadata using lavf and av_read_frame() from a file that contains no video or audio tracks, but here is a sample file: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/7730988/aviddata.mxf
You can run ffmpeg like this although the result isn't terribly useful unless you are interested in this metadata. :)
ffmpeg -i aviddata.mxf -map 0 -codec copy -f rawvideo out.raw
Before the patch, the 2nd call to av_read_frame() returns AVERROR_INVALIDDATA and prints this message:
[mxf @ 0x10180f200] failed to find absolute offset of 100 in BodySID 1 - partial file?
aviddata.mxf: Invalid data found when processing input
After this patch, there is still a read error but it happens after the last data frame, so the output file successfully contains all the raw data from the input file.
I noticed that getting a read error after reaching the last frame is fairly common when reading MXF files in ffmpeg and so I can take a look at that as a separate issue if you'd like, but it should not detract from the validity of this patch.
