Thanks for your reply! I did some more testing and I can reproduce it as
well with the 8bit mode, it occurrs less frequently. When I switch back to
16 bit it takes only a few tries with aplay to get the hiccups. So it seems
it is a bit more tricky than I initially thought. Xine can be a strange
beast some times, so that's why I used aplay as well. Anybody have some more
ideas how to tackle this problem or point me in the right direction so I can
solve it myself? It seems I am so close to a working solution...

Kind regards,
