Hard to say without more information.

Does seeking work with the same file(s) in totem or rhythmbox?

Maybe you need to install the mp3parse/mpegaudioparse elements because
your mp3 decoder doesn't support seeking? Depending on your version of
the GStreamer stack, these might be in gst-plugins-bad, gst-plugins-ugly
or gst-plugins-good. Or you could try installing the 'mad' mp3 decoder.
