I use those two apps frequently - listening to XMMS right this moment, matter
of fact - and have never had that type of problem.  I'm using an up-to-date
woody box, PII 300, 64 megs RAM, kernel 2.2.16, Netscape and XMMS package are:

ii  navigator-base-4 4.72-16          Navigator base support for version 4.72
ii  navigator-smotif 4.72-16          Netscape Navigator 4.72 (static Motif)
ii  netscape-base-4  4.73-32          Popular World-Wide-Web browser software (base su
ii  netscape-base-47 4.72-16          4.72 base support for netscape
ii  netscape-java-47 4.72-16          Netscape Java support for version 4.72
ii  xmms             1.2.1-helix3     Versatile X audio player that looks like Winamp

The XMMS package is from Helixcode - I'm using Helix Gnome with Sawfish. 
The Netscape packages are straight off Debian's site via apt-get -  I had
gone to 4.73 but had problems with it so went back to 4.72.

Just to be sure of myself, I just fired up Netscape.  Got it grabbing the
weather radar loop now.  XMMS is also playing - Mason William's "Classical
Gas" - without a hitch.  Looks like it just might be that patch giving you
