I guess the unsettling thing with this is that xine behaves correctly
reagrding the audio sync when launched from a Gnome terminal but does
not when subsequently launched from Mythvideo.

Only this fact would lead me to look into process forking usage or
thread use (whichever is used to spawn the xine process).

Also troublesome is that while fiddling around playing videos and mpeg
files from Mythvideo it will happen that going back to a previously
out-of-sync video will then give good results.

But then, that might be only a video setting, but surely is not a
stable problem.
