I recently developed a problem with the display of play time in xmms. It will flash alternately between the position in the song and the start position. The position cursor will alternate as well.

I tried changing all user the user settings and plugins in xmms I could. One clue I did get is that it flashes between wherever you start in the song and present position. For example, if you "jump to" time the displayed time will flash between present and the jump time.

I recently had to reinstall firefox and flash-plugin using yum because the manually installed version of firefox stopped playing flash. I'm running Centos5.

Before I uninstall/reinstall xmms I thought I'd query the forums and known problems. I searched extensively without a hit. Anybody familiar with this problem? Anybody with the same problem who wants to work through this with me?
