I've been getting this for a while, apparently not all the firewire boxes send 
good streams, the one I have seems to be one of them, every so often it will 
glitch and the internal player doesn't know what to do, usually it will crash 
the frontend, sometimes I have to kill it manually. libmpeg plays through the 
glitches but is way to slow on my machine to be used as the normal player.
