Short description of error
Blender's ability to calculate a video's FPS on import seems to have degraded in blender 2.79. I have a constant 24 fps video that was animated out by blender and is 5789 (video frames) and 5788 (audio frames). When I import it into blender VSE, through drag and drop or "Add-> Movie" menu, blender 2.79 will detect that the video has a "Custom (-0.02 fps)." The the video strip imports and shows that it is a correct 5788 frames but the audio strip is -4 frames. Blender 2.78c does not have this same issue. It auto detects the frame rate from the same imported video correctly.

The video I am importing was animated out by blender using the following encoding settings:

Video Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Color Mode: RGB
Container: MPEG-4
Output Quality: High Quality
Encoding Speed : Medium Speed
FPS: 24 fps
keyframe interval: 12
Max B-frames: Unchecked
Audio Codec: AAC
Bitrate: 320

Work around:
If you manually set the correct fps, it will display the strips correctly in the Video Sequencer. It seems that this is just a glitch with the FPS autodetection.
