Not sure if this will help or not, but the default Settings is "Align
cursor to frames" as seen in the Settings pulldown.  But you might try to
"Align cursor on frames when editing a video track and Align to samples
when editing audio".  Check the box on for video and off for audio in the
Settings pulldown.
