Live Stream DASH — Can't pause playback

Scenario: At the "start" of a live DASH stream.

For some reason, when I pause the stream, it will invariable continue to play after a certain while. I believe this is because of the moving "window" of cached stream. I'm observing all control messages, and see no directive to either "resume", or "play", yet playback resumes nonetheless. Any suggestion as to what may be going on, and how to manage it? I think it may result of a moving "window" on the streaming segments, but I'm unsure.

I don't know if it applies or not, but have you looked at LiveBoundsPauseBehavior?!
