Well, technically, it advances once every 128 steps, but the step counter for the current 128 steps gets carried over with your save. So I'd strongly suggest that, when searching for a seed, you assume that you'll be advancing the IV frame that way at least once, and try to walk exactly 128 (or 256 if you need to) steps.
