One thing that I thought was a little strange related to this in the last
 file I sent is that if during an animation you do:

  var bounds1 = box.getBoundingClientRect( ) ;
  var now = player.currentTime ;
  player.currentTime = 100000000 ;
  player.currentTime = now ;
  var bounds2 = box.getBoundingClientRect( ) ;

The values of bounds2 will not be the same as bounds1. I assume that that
is because player.currentTime progresses even between frames. I wonder if
it should only be update each time a frame is drawn? I see that would be
complicated to get right but it would be less surprising.
