When counting frames Length = End - Start +1 (similar to the fencepost problem)

start 00:00:00:00 end 00:00:00:00 references the first frame. The length is 00:00:00:01
An "empty" selection has neither start nor end.

This convention dates back to editing tape and film.

So is this intentional behaviour? If it is, I will close the report.

In general yes, except in the first case I'd expect the length to be 97086. There is still some oddity here.
