It's mplayer.  I ran a search in the source and found the string.
Seems to be timing out while trying to write audio, and the comment
seems to imply that this is a synchronization issue.  Since it only
started recently, I think it isn't.  

There is no problem with the version in Fedora, it works properly.  I'm
using the subversion repository to build, so this is a regression there.
