[Libav-user] Why av_seek_frame with AVSEEK_FLAG_BACKWARD sometimes seeks to "NEXT" keyframe?

When call av_seek_frame with AVSEEK_FALG_BACKWARD, its expected behavior
should be seek to "backward" keyframe of requested time.

But sometimes, it seeks to its "next" keyframe, not "backward". (might be
when the requested time is just ONE frame before the time of its next
keyframe, see

Is this an expected behavior? if then, what is the correct way to seek to
its backward keyframe?
