I actually reported this same bug last week (without searching first to  
see if it was there) along with some other QT stuff.  I see the problem  
in the IDE as well as a distribution using audio files.  Another  
problem is that if you start a QT player using transcript (set playRate  
to 1) the play/pause button does not update and you have to click the  
button twice to pause the controller.

I imagine the problem is related to the same one that keeps  
effects-only movies from working which Tim Monroe noted in his MacTech  
articles on Revolution.  I think he mentioned that MCIdle probably  
wasn't being called often enough.
