It's a known problem that their 'improvements' made things worse for us;
Bastien Nocera put up a patch from the xine-user list at
which works fine for me. Unfortunately video/audio sync is still bad
with dmasound, maybe alsa would be better.

Pretty much, yes. I assume only sound was worse for you with 0.5.x? It
seems to be better in general here.
