Since upgrading to iTunes 4.7 and QuickTime 6.5.2 on Oct. 28, I
have been experiencing intermittent system freezes while playing
ogg files through iTunes. The system freezes -- the mouse pointer
still moves, but nothing can be clicked on or typed -- and the
music immediately stops playing. Several seconds later, everything
unfreezes and the music skips and catches up. It usually seems to
happen when I'm doing something else on the computer while
listening to music, but it's not easily reproducible on demand.
I am running OS X 10.3.5 with OggVorbis.component 1.0d8.
Nothing appears in $(dmesg) when it freezes.
I'm happy to help try to debug this, but I'm not sure where to start.
