framerate not behaving as expected

I am not sure if this is a bug or a misunderstanding on my part.

I frequently come across movie rips with durations that are short by a few minutes despite the movie appearing to be fully intact. I suspect the ripper set the frame rate at 25 fps rather than the correct 23.976 fps resulting in the video running a little fast.

I thought I might use VidCoder to fix this error by re-ripping the video with the frame rate set to 23.976. I tried this but the movie duration and slightly fast playback speed did not change (although a tool like MediaInfo reports that the frame rate is 23.976).

Is this a bug or do I misunderstand what the framerate setting does?
