All of them work just fine on my machine (debian-based x86-64), and
they have always been. Seeking is fast and accurate. No problem

The problem _may_ be with Mac OS X, but if it's the case, you're all
alone: few ppl on the core team have that setup thus, it's hard for
them to reproduce the problem and fix it.

I am disillusioned enough to know that no man's opinion on any subject
is worth a damn unless backed up with enough genuine information to
make him really know what he's talking about.
