I saw Wim reverting my change for oss sync, so I thought I'd explain.

What happens is that in all apps that use osssink, is that when you skip 
to the next song or seek, playback stalls for the amount of time the seek 
is for.

People said this was due to adder, but it happens in nautilus-media as 
well, and that doesn't use adder.  So it's something else.

Now, I would like to know if sync=false causes any problems; ie., it seems 
to me that we're better off making sync FALSE the default, and override it 
in the gconf key if necessary.

I'm going to put osssink sync=false as the default key anyway if it's not 
changed in the code, because it's too important to let slide.
