Broken .edl Files in Kodi 18.5
#1
For the past several years I've been using .edl Files to enable family safe movie filtering (as per the kodi wiki entry on .edl files - "Examples of use include can be to skip commercials, cut out content inappropriate for children, or skip over the half hour acid trip in 2001: A Space Odyssey .") . 

Since upgrading to kodi 18.5 - this feature appears completely broken.  I have confirmed this on an osmc build of 18.5 running on a Vero 4k machine (actually confirmed on 2 separate such machines) and on an 18.5 release running on Mac Os X and on 18.5 running on windows.

Here is the log file (*v18.5) from mac with playing a movie with an .edl file in the same folder:
bucigogoqa.kodi (paste)

And here is the log file  (*v18.5) from Windows:
liwipameda.kodi (paste)

With 18.4, .edl files worked.  Though, since v17 .edl files have caused a temporary audio sync issue but it always re-adjusts / catches up.  Here is a log for 18.4 running the same movie / edl file:
lumaxizemo.kodi (paste)

I recognize this may seem strange as according to 18.5's release notes, one of the improvements included  "Fixes to commercial skip (EDL) processing".  However - in my case the opposite seems to be true?

For further background information:

With v17.6, .edl files worked but as mentioned above had the audio sync issue.
xonijiwuko.kodi (paste)

With 16.1 - .edl files worked PERFECTLY with proper audio sync, etc.
dojelezulo.kodi (paste)

Thanks for any suggestions or help!  I really don't want to have to downgrade everything to 16.1.
