RAV Rahmenfrist question

Hi all - hoping someone can help with a question.

My wife became unemployed at end of March 2017 and registered for the RAV - she made claims payments until September 2017 at which point she started contracting. She contracted until February 2019, claimed RAV for 1 month in March 2019 and then took another contract from 1st April 2019.

The current contract ends in November 2019 and currently there is no job.

As I understand it with the RAV the first Rahmenfrist benefit period ran from 1st April 2017 to 31st March 2019. If on 1st December she doesn't have a job, the Rahmenfrist contribution period will look back 2 years from 30th November 2019 to 1st December 2017 and calculate she has 23 months of employment in that 2 year period and she will qualify for almost the full number of potential days of benefit payments - it makes no difference as to whether in those prior 24 months she was in the Rahmenfrist for the benefit period from the previous claim.

She has received different advice and will not qualify as the Rahmenfrist contribution period, only begins when the previous benefit period has ended so she would only have 6 months of contributions. I'm pretty sure this advice is incorrect.

Can anyone confirm one way or the other?
