weird time reported while playing flac files

Using the last svn mplayer (SVN-r28653-4.3.3), flac files are correctly played, but the time is not shown as it should be. The time doesn't start from 0, but from a value that changes when playing different files (typical: ~1s). Than, when this bogus time is reached by the real playback time, it begins counting, but in a weird manner: the 1/10th of second are not really 1/10th, and sometimes the shown time starts oscillating around a given value for some fractions of a second.
I didn't notice any error in mplayer's output (even with -v).

There's no problem while playing mp3, ogg or wav.

This does not depend on the audio out module (-ao), so I hope I made the right choice in relating it to the audio decoder.

I add some additional information about my system:

Linux moth 2.6.28 #4 SMP PREEMPT Wed Feb 18 21:43:46 CET 2009 i686 Intel(R) Core(TM) Duo CPU L2500 @ 1.83GHz GenuineIntel? GNU/Linux

gcc version 4.3.3 (GCC)
GNU ld (GNU Binutils)
GNU assembler (GNU Binutils)

If you need additional informations just ask.

Thank you.

It seems to be acting like the file has a fixed bit rate, which is not the case. It might looks a little like that, but it's not.

In my example it starts with toggling between 1.1 and 1.2 seconds at the start of the file where there is silence. After this time it starts counting what might look like normal, but there are periods where it's counting to fast and periods where it's counting to slow. Sometimes you also see it jump in time a little.

This is with 1.0rc3 I think. It's Debian version 2:1.0~rc3++final.dfsg1-1
