Strange TC on 50 FPS clips

Bouke / VideoToolShed
Hi all,
Getting strange TC readings on 50 FPS clips.
FFmpeg reports      timecode        : 11:26:32:42
(And that corresponds with the frame counter in the start of the mdat atom.)

Premiere  reports   22:53:05:34
 QT 7 and Avid (older version) 22:53:05:17

Now Avid and QT have the habit of stepping trough the video by two frames if fps > 30, so that might be a hint.
(If I take FFmpegs TC to frames, (2059642) multiply that by 2 I’m at the ‘correct’ frame number, converted back to TC it gives 22:53:05:34)

Now, is this a bug or am I missing something?

(Setting TC with FFmpeg has no issues as far as I’ve seen.)

If interested, the clip can be found here:

(Turn your volume down if you want to play it, it has loud LTC on the right channel.)
