http_mp4_module seeking problem: "start time is out mp4 stts samples"

Sometimes I have problem with seeking MP4 files. Files were post-processed to move ATOM data to the begining of file, so most of the times seeking works fine but sometimes I get error like this:
*6 start time is out mp4 stts samples in "/home/uploads/broljxe8iyse.mp4"
Interesting that if we retry same exactly request 2nd time it works fine.
Old 1.2.9 version looks working stable with this.
Full debug log attached.

Roman, could you please take a look?

Just for record: looking though debug log suggests that the problem is that strtod() use in mp4 module is wrong, as "start=" argument isn't null-terminated may be followed by arbitrary data after an internal redirect.

In 6782:b123eae3fd4e/nginx:

Mp4: introduced custom version of ngx_atofp().

This allows to correctly parse "start" and "end" arguments without
null-termination (ticket #475), and also fixes rounding errors observed
with strtod() when using i387 instructions.
