No FPS limit when playing bink videos even though "framerate limit" is set in settings.cfg
Version: Latest bleed (just pulled and compiled, commit 03a35c38df9a8fc788d98978f1ab73f98f8d1866)
add "frame limit = 60.0" to settings.cfg
start openmw launcher and press play
press F3 as soon as possible to get FPS counter
watch the intro video
Expected: FPS counter shows FPS running at 60.0 or less during the video
Happened: FPS counter is completely unlimited, reaches >1500 for me. While ingame or in the main menu FPS is correctly limited to 60.
Note: This causes my GPU to get hot and make sound from all the unneeded work it's doing rendering these videos. It also wastes electricity for the same reason. Not the highest priority issue probably but still something that should be fixed.

I can confirm this, and it is not just during the video, but at the main menu and game loading menu as well. Also, it may nor may not be harmless, but I hear some sort of high-pitched noise from my computer at these times, which is a little disconcerting, so I'd like to see this get fixed.
