    Bug report: WMP11 build 11.0.6000.6324 on Vista x64 tried both x86 and x64
    versions of WMP11; playing a number of WMV files.

    Hang: Open wmv file: Then seeking forwards, then play in wmv file causes a
    hang, and WMP11 has to be manually terminated.

    No picture updating: Open wmv file, play then stop at some point, seeking
    backwards then hitting play causes picture display to stop updating yet audio
    continues playing. The app does not hang, but needs to be terminated to
    restore sanity.

    Tested under Vista Ultimate x64 retail, in turn with both x64 adn x86
    versions of WMP11.

    Reproduction steps: fully download .wmv file at
    http://channel9.msdn.com/Showpost.aspx?postid=207162 and save before playing.

    (I did not fully explore the behaviour if started to play immediately whilst
    still being downloaded.)

    Note, exact same behaviour with various other .wmv files at channel9 tagged
    with "vista".
