Seeking is not the problem, the problem is that obviously the reference
picture is missing, but for some reason also
in ff_h264_decode_ref_pic_list_reordering.
I wonder a bit if it might have something to do with the
"//FIXME mt gives valgrind warnings and crashes if this is uncommented"
I think it was a really crappy idea to merge that as is, at least
these kind of changes should be under an if so that at the very least
the single-threaded case is not affected.
