This happened every time I tried to minimize XMMS without WM
decorations. Try:
rpm -Fvh
I don't know what's stopping it from being pushed to updates
(non-testing), works for me (at the moment ;)) and the crashes are gone.

XMMS suspected again :)
Every time any program is playing something with OSS emulation (most
likely the Flash plugin or mplayerplug-in with its default setting (hint
to Anvil or someone other from livna)) and XMMS wants to play using ALSA
device "default", something weird happens - XMMS correctly (or not -
where's dmix when we need it?) reports it cannot play, but then locks
ALSA "default" - hanging every other program until I close XMMS. In my
case, I wouldn't even notice because I use hw:0,1 in XMMS anyhow, but
there are people using "default" and someone let me know.

So, the first thing is fixed in updates-testing and the other, well, for
me it's not only XMMS' fault - blocking of whole ALSA (e.g. sox -t alsa
default - that's what `play` runs) when there's one OSS ABI program
playing (sox -t ossdsp /dev/dsp on another vt) - even if my sound card
has hardware mixing - is wrong.
