So it is printed once after each seek. How is that a problem?

It informs about a problem that can have practical consequences (try playing
this kind of files with a limited CPU) and can be fixed (although not with
ffmpeg for now). That is exactly what a warning is made for. Simply removing
it would be idiotic.
