User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030206

Description of problem:
Playing ogg or mp3 files in XMMS with OSS sounds output driver results in
correct playback for a few seconds, then frequencies gradually shift upwards. 
Seeking to a new location in the stream or starting a new stream usually get
audio frequencies back to their correct levels

Xine video playback plays audio more quickly than video; this may be a xine bug
as I'm running xine-lib-beta6.

The TV tuner card correctly plays back audio from the microphone; no frequency /
speed shifting occurs

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run XMMS
2.load an mp3 or ogg file
3.play for 2-30 seconds, listen for upward shifts in audio.
4.restart stream or seek a few seconds behind current location to shift
frequencies back downwards - good demonstration of the difference

Actual Results:  squeaky, fast, crappy audio

Expected Results:  gourgeous stereo Ogg-Vorbis audio

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
