I don't have much of a theory on what is going wrong since I can't
reproduce the problem. Why don't you finish the patch and have the
reporter try it out. If it helps then reopen the ticket with the
patch and assign it to me. Then I'll check it out.

It seems plausible at least that his machine is having trouble
resyncing to the audio if it takes a while for the video to
initialize... The logs he posted did show a pretty long audio
sync, though I discounted that since the log is from before
some of Isaac's most recent fixes for ringbuffer switching.
It's weird though since even my slow old P4 1.8GHz machine
doesn't have this problem with even 1080i material.
