Shouldn't it better instead handle the seek error properly? If it hangs
like this I'd assume it will hang the same way e.g. with a scratched
And even if this is the best solution, preferably any code that can
cause hangs should be eliminated (I have a similar problem with the TV
code, if the reception is bad MPlayer can hang for several minutes
before reacting to input, though some of it might be because (AFAICT)
simply all TV-related kernel-drivers are full of bugs).
