Description of problem:
audio play from xmms stops if the mouse button is held down for an extended time
while resizing a window.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xmms 1.2.5-7

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start xmms playing a familiar song. Monitor playback.
2.Start an xterm (or other window-managed app)
3.Resize the xterm by grabbing a corner and stretching the window. 
4.Continue holding the mouse button down for 30 seconds. Subsequent tests
require (or is that allow?) considerably less hold time before behavior is

Actual Results:  Play continues for a few seconds (apparently until the buffer
runs out) then stops. Play resumes immediately as soon as the button is released.

Expected Results:  Audio through xmms should continue regardless of mouse behavior.
Desktop behavior should not block the audio system.  Playback should
be independent as long as sufficient resources are available.

Additional info:

Test involved xmms 1.2.5-7 playing ogg-format files.
I believe I've seen similar problems with WAV format, but I haven't confirmed
this test.

We are not likely to release a fix for 7.2 at this point.
