I would guess that if you just wait after the display goes black, then it will eventually begin playing OK again (after the length of time of the skip has passed). I would be interested in having you confirm if you see the same behavior.
Normal playback does indeed resume if I let it continue. In fact, normal playback resumes pretty much where it would if EDL skip was working normally. Basically it appears as though Kodi is blanking the screen and sound during EDL cuts instead of skipping.
