Do you know how this should be flagged correctly?
After all, there are still progressive frames in 
the output file: Are they supposed to be flagged 
as interlaced or does the intended output contain 
frames alternatingly flagged progressive and tff?
I would like to test this with you if possible.

The way I understand the documentation 2332 should 
be superior.
