When playing a movie in mplayer, it works fine for about 15 minutes.
After that, the movie plays in 1 second skips only. What seems to happen
the mplayer process gets stuck while interacting with /dev/audio.
dmesg shows lots of these errors then:

	autri0: Codec timeout. Busy reading AC'97 codec.

I'm using NetBSD 1.6/i386, and also tried the latest autri* code from
-current - no change. ^C'ing mplayer and restarting doesn't help, the
movie still skips. Rebooting fixes things.

One interesting thing is that I can still play mp3s fine (with mpg123)
when the hangs happen in mplayer.

Does anyone have a clue on what to do?
