According to http://bugs.xmms.org/show_bug.cgi?id=115 this bug seems to be 
related to the drivers in the kernel, and was fixed somewhere in between 2.4.10 
and 2.4.16, where one of the reporters said the problem went away. Upgrading 
the kernel to a newer version would most likely help.

(If anyone has more specific information I'd be glad if I was let in on that :)

Especially if whatever fix was applied to the kernel made it into one or 
several of the redhat patchlevels so we can advise our users that they need to 
upgrade their kernel (if it's available that is).

rawhide has kernel 2.4.17 at the moment; marking this as resolved there.
