Ah. In that case, have you tried Beep (
It's basically xmms, but ported to gtk2. I've just installed it myself,
aiming to eliminate gtk1 from my system completely - seems to work

If the problem you're reporting is due to that glib1/glib2 mix, using a
gtk2 based app like Beep shouldn't be affected.
