From what you describe, it sounds like either the currentTime isn't
reported correctly, or there is some kind of delay at the start of
play so the currenttime doesn't change (stuck at 0) in the first 250
milliseconds. Do you reset the timer at the start of each clip? I
could imagine some over-enthuiastic virus-checker causing a delay as
you switch files in the Player, and possibly when QuickTime tries to
start playing the file. Or a very full hard drive.
Off the top of my head, set the currentTime to 0 for each clip, then
check that the currentTime hasn't changed AND that it is not 0.
(Using the playStopped message would be easier. :-))
