Sorry... I'm only responding to say this happens to me,too (although I'm
running 1.6.)

XMMS will play songs for a while. When it switches to a new song, there's a
small chance that it'll get stuck. If it starts playing a song, it'll play
the whole thing. It's only when switching songs that it could get stuck.

When it's in this state, 'top' shows XMMS is in the RUN state. The only
recovery is to kill XMMS and start it again.

Some other information (to see if we're doing something similar): I play
both MP3 and OGG files. The files are read from an NFS drive (the NFS
server is FreeBSD 4.6.)
