Event Timeline

This is a known thing about MCE and VSE not supporting multilayer EXRs. Would consider this is a TODO (MCE was already listed in my own TODO list, added VSE there http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:2.5/Source/Development/Todo/Tools#Sequence_Editor).

Thanks for the report, bur marking as a TODO.
