XMMS 1.2.8-2 on Debian 2.4.22 not changing songs automatically

Strange problem that's really annoying.

xmms will not play more than one song consecutively. The strange thing is that it doesn't just stop, but it doesn't move to the next track in the playlist (shuffle and repeat don't fix this either). when a song finishes, the progress slider stays at the end positon, and if i hit the pause button, then it changes to the next track. strange indeed. anyone know how to make it change songs automatically?

Debian kernel 2.4.22
xmms 1.2.8-2 (oss for output)
turtle beach santa cruz (cs46xx)
gnome 2.4

yeah i've got the same problem, had it with v 1.2.8. so removed 1.2.8 and installed 1.2.9 and same problem... then i noticed... the song stops playing one second before its actual end and thus it doesnt change automatically to the next song or repeat the current song coz it didnt end...

but dunno what to do about it other than using gxine which does have a nice editor...

anybody with an answer?
