Seeking is entirely broken in most ASF/WMV files. It seems almost random which work and which don't. I would estimate that 80% of are unseekable.
Symptoms are as follows-- when playing the WMV, seeking or skipping (using the right/left or up/down keys) will fail and instantly skip back to the beginning of the file. Note that all the various linux media players I tried could seek through these WMV files just fine. I tried totem, mplayer using openGL, etc.
When I try to fast forward instead of seeking, it works for a short time and then immediately skips to the very end of the file and ends. 2X and 4X FF work much better than 8X, which always skips to the end. It's pretty bizarre.
My test case WMV file can be found here. I can upload it elsewhere if you don't want to use this source.
Debug log is here. It has me starting XBMC, loading up the test case WMV, and trying to seek through it.
I'm running hardy on a C2D at 3Ghz with 2GB RAM and a 9500GT PCIe graphics card and the new 177.78 beta nvidia drivers. Vsync is off, but I've tried it on, with flipping enabled, etc. Nothing seems to help. This really does look like a problem with dvdplayer and not my configuration.
Please let me know if I can provide any more information to help you guys out, this bug really bugs me!
