Cinelerra version indicated in bugreport was 2.1.5, but there was no
resolution ('resolved/fixed' ), so I wonder if this bug still lurking
somewhere in CinGG and messing up some timelines...

I create an imagelist and load it on the timeline.
Cinelerra plays it back correctly till the end where the bug appears:
after the last frame the last-but-one frame is added and played back.
When playing back frame by frame a blank frame is added and played back.
The bug depends on the framerate of the imagelist.
I attach a folder with images, lists and an XML project where lists with 5,
8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 25 and 30 fps are tested:
5 -> Correct normal playback but 2 blank frames when played back frame by
8 -> Bug!
10 -> Bug!
12 -> Bug!
15 -> OK
20 -> OK
25 -> OK
30 -> OK
NB: 12 fps is the traditional framerate for animation.
I first noticed this bug in 2008, when editing my first quick pace
Make your image sequence longer by copying 2-3 times the last image in your
image folder, giving appropriate names (keep the numering of the sequence).
Add them to your image list file in a text editor or recreate the imagelist
file. Reopen your XML project in Cinelerra. The playback should now be OK.

Just preparing the attachment now I noticed the bug is present only with
720x576 images. Changing the images resolution to 640x480 or 375x300 makes
the imagelists to be played back correctly.
NOTE: 720x576 is the standard animation resolution when capturing from
MiniDV cameras via firewire framegrabbers.
