SCI: KQ6 Mac QuickTime intro movie freezes

The introduction movie freezes during scenes in ScummVM. This does not occur in the original. The intro movie is the QuickTime file KQ6Movie and plays without freezes in the Mac QuickTime player. Other than the freezes, the movie looks much better in ScummVM.
The freezes appear related to scene boundaries, as the video resumes once the next scene is reached. It feels like the freezes happen relative to the end of a scene, as opposed to a fixed time after the start, but I'm not sure. These scenes are defined and named in the resource fork. (I don't know much about QuickTime)
There is no audio in KQ6Movie, the game plays a separate audio track while the movie runs.
I'm assuming the issue is in the ScummVM QuickTime decoder.
