FLV streaming module - incorrect byte transfer totals?

I'm using 0.7.65 with the default flv streaming module and doing some
tests on a video clip using flowplayer (latest rev) with the lighttpd
module. The player is functioning correctly but the logs are showing
some strange byte totals when seeking in the file.


File size is 85Mb

start=0 = sc-bytes @ 3,429,888
?start=69,515,705 = sc-bytes @ 12,557,965

The buffer download reflected in the player is the same duration (20
seconds or so) on both of these requests. - yet the second request has
almost 4x the total bytes transferred.

Either there is something strange going on with the FLV module, or
flowplayer is doing some jacked up http requests (or the buffer is not
reflected correctly in the UI).

Has anyone else run into this problem?
