The other warnings are related to the first warning. This leads to the
matroska plugin not being loaded. I dunno why your playback fails, but it
looks like a somehow broken ogg file. Does this happen with all ogg files?

GStreamer uses mad for decoding mp3s, xmms uses a different mp3 decoder (
I think mpg123 or similar). This might be the reason. You could try
madplay to know exactly.
But feel free to profile our code, nobody has done it yet, especially not
in the <2% CPU usage cases.
