A few "30 second jump"s forward is pretty consistant in causing the problem.

I very rarely watch live tv.  This is with recordings.

Yes, I am using AC3 passthrough, and audio timebase.

This problem is *so* consistant for me, that I have actually been 
surprised that no one else has complained about it.  I am currently 
running the 23Jul04 CVS, since it does not have the problem, but worry 
about getting "left behind" :'(

One thing I have not tried, is compiling up the 24Jul04 CVS with OpenGL 
disabled.  I will give that a try later on.
