FFProbe incorrectly shows positive value for start time with no options flags

Description

Summary of the bug:

Some files with negative start times for audio produce a positive start time for ffprobe output without any flags:

ffprobe -input file

produces a start time field which is positive for the above file. However,

ffprobe -show_streams -select_streams a -input file shows the correct negative audio start time.

How to reproduce:

Download a file produced by ffmpeg libraries:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/9jfwmyt4p83dx2e/_mezzanine_transcode.mp4?dl=0

The file produces the following :

However, the same version of ffprobe with the following arguments properly shows the negative start time for the same file, unlike the above default ffprobe output.

For future tickets: Please do not report bugs against FFprobe if they are reproducible with FFmpeg (and don't forget to test current FFmpeg git head before reporting an issue).

This bug was fixed in 949444348b752664243681625f9f1d2c55b6dfaa - for the attached sample it currently cannot be tested because of ticket #5420.
