it seems to be seeking on segment boundaries only.
Of course, if I put -ss after the input '-i' I seek accurately but
it's an output parameter now so it takes much longer since it's
decoding all the frames (also doesn't work with multiple input maps).
And according to 'https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Seeking' input seeking
should be accurate
Is this a bug or I am missing a parameter?
(BTW, I posted this same question in Nov 2016 without a valid answer.
If no one can answer this time, I'll open a bug)

Hello again Louis.
Agreed that the fix I suggested last time didn’t work. I actually discovered it didn’t fully fix the issue I was trying to fix as well.
However, I have now submitted a new patch which correctly fixes the issue I was solving.
I took the time to reproduce your issue outlined in your original post. I managed to reproduce it and then resolve it with this new patch.
The patch I submit has changes to his.c (relevant to your issue) and to mov.c (not relevant to your issue).
