I'd suggest trying a newer playbin2 element. While playing with hooking
up gapless playback in Banshee I saw this sort of behaviour. It's
(almost) fixed in the 0.10.22.2 pre-release, and I think there's been
a full release of gstreamer-plugins-base since then.
 Barring wavpack, which still manages to be crazy.
