Problem with jpegparse and timestamps

Hi all,

I have been using gstreamer to stream live video from mjpeg cameras with a
pipeline like this:

gst-launch-1.0 souphttpsrc is-live=true location=<camera_url> !
multipartdemux ! image/jpeg,framerate=0/1 ! jpegparse ! avdec_mjpeg !
videoconvert ! ximagesink

This was working fine with 1.14.x.
Recently I upgraded gstreamer to a more recent version and the above does
not work well anymore. Video stutters or freezes.

I ran git bisect and found the following commit to be the culprit:

If I revert that commit, the pipeline works fine again.

Is this the expected behaviour? Can someone shed some light?
