I think/hope I found all remaining bugs (wrt this issue) in xine and fixed 
them. The patches just got committed.

Please everybody that has some spare CPU cycles do the following:

sudo apt-get install mercurial
hg clone
cd xine-lib
sudo make install

cd obj/kdebase
ccmake ./
# change xine include and lib paths to /usr/local
cd runtime/phonon/xine
make phonon_xine/fast
make install/fast

and report any remaining Phonon/Xine/Audio/Video problems.
