This has always been a problem with Apple. It boils down to a rounding error in how frame rates are calculated. If you look at Adobe-generated versus Apple-generated 23.976/23.98 footage, they are stamped differently. Way back when, Apple manuals for FCP "legacy" actually stated that a frame of QT media was not guaranteed to actually cover the exact duration of 1 frame of time. Remember, even though you are working with I-frame codecs, the video engine is not a frame-based architecture, like Quantel or Autodesk.
