I had that issue with the latest phonon-gstreamer, not sure if you refer to that as well or to phonon-mplayer.
Basically phonon-gstreamer is the only still developed and supported phonon backend available in Slackware core. Both mplayer and xine are stalled and should no longer be used.
That the gstreamer backend does not advance tracks is a bug in 4.6.0, it works fine in 4.5.x. So my solution was to not upgrade. Unfortunately you can't just recompile the old version
atop the new kde because the api changed and it no longer compiles, but using an already compiled version works (you can still get it from alienBOB's ktown repo of kde 4.7.4).
I suppose this will also be fixed in 4.6.1.
The alternative is to install phonon-vlc, which you have to compile from source as well because alienBOB's package is out of date.
