I have never really noticed it on MPGs, but I cannot FF or RW ASFs either. I don't believe that the ASF format provides for individual frame identifiers (guessing by reasoning), otherwise, you could use FF and RW.

ASF will only allow you to fast forward and rewind if it is an absolute complete stream that has been closed it seems. If it's only a partial stream that has any data missing on the end or is incomplete in anyway it seems to force you to suffer through the whole stream (yuck) I don't know the exact mechanics of why this is, but I tested it a few times when I was getting mad about one of my simpsons episodes not fast forwarding heheh

If you use a program called divx fix you can strip the index of the file and play it normally without a problem:) :)
