 I had something similar a few months back on ppc, caused by one of the
plugins, but I can't find any notes.  I tracked it down by building gdb,
starting XMMS from within gdb, then doing a backtrace (bt) after it
crashed.  The trace showed it was in some sort of startup code and
calling one of the plugins.  I removed the plugin (all I remember was
that it was for something that I didn't think was very important) and it
worked fine.
