System: NetBSD crocus 1.6Q NetBSD 1.6Q (CROCUS) #12: Sat Apr 5 10:13:02 CEST 2003 troot@ficus:/home/build/netbsd-obj-current/sys/arch/i386/compile/CROCUS i386

after a variable amount of time (2 to 5s), xmms triggers the folowing
assertion "0" failed: file "/home/src/netbsd-current/lib/libpthread/pthread.c", line 361, function "pthread__idle"

(see for a
bit more info).

Sometimes, xmms just freezes, plays nothing (no sound) and is idle (0%
cpu). SIGINT works.
start xmms, try to play a file and wait.
