I'm currently using and old cvs build 20020702 and I haven't seen it do it
yet (I've used it for about 3 hours so far).

Build 20020706 I was using the other day did it maybe 90% of the time and
mostly on vbr files (but I have mostly vbr's (encoded with xing) so probably
all files do it).

What about the scrolling file name on the top of the screen over-running?
That one looked nasty. I haven't looked at the scroller code yet but surely
it should just be a "window" into the buffer and so the buffer length
becomes irrelevent.
