I think Suse uses Pulseaudio, it's been a while since I ran it.  That
should take care of any pausing.  You could open a problem record for

Blind leading the blind here, but I find that when sound gets out of

and right arrow) resolves the issue.  Worth a try.

Perhaps the audio isn't indexed properly?  Try adding -forceidx to the
