Cannot confirm that here with neither current master nor 2.78c official build (though in 2.78 'match' button to automatically detect length of image sequences is not working, this has been fixed in master).

This sounds like OpenGL issue, please:

  • Give us your exact Blender, OS and GPU (including drivers) versions, as requested in the template!
  • Ensure both your OS and drivers are fully up-to-date (and use official GPU drivers, not those provided by windows or tablet/laptop maker).
  • Try to re-download and re-install Blender.
  • Try the latest build from our buildbot.
  • Try to start Blender in factory settings (--factory-startup commandline option) (this will ensure whether this is a userpref or addon issue or not).
  • Try to tweak OGL settings in UserPreferences, System tab.
  • Try to tweak your GPU driver settings (e.g. try different values between 'performance' and 'quality' if you have such slider, etc.).
  • Try to place this dll next to your blender.exe (software OGL, will be slow, but will show whether this is a driver issue or not).

I'm sorry, I don't really have much time, my laptop keyboard got water, so I dry my computer for a few days.

Thank you for the reply, but at least the bug is reported for future blender.
Solution: the problem doesn't exist if I use a Movie background (the movie format is AVI JPEG, because it has no bug on frame by frame, but the H.264 format has bug on a random frame such that the frames are not successive).

You need to set it to either movie clip or image sequence.
