It might be helpful if you showed us the exact code that sets up the
GstSegment structure.

Are you filling in the 'time' field with the PTS value of A40 as well?
Are you setting the RESET flag? etc.

You might want to have a look at what existing elements such as
GstBaseParse or demuxers like qtdemux or oggdemux do.
