I think this is a (known?) bug.
I've been struggling with it a while back.
I will also happen when you try to loop a file (take the 'done' bang and
have it open the file again and start playback) that doesn't exist.
I remember that it helped a little to tweak /etc/security/linmits.conf but
I'm not sure if it was a real solution.
Also I think it helps to have lots of RAM, but that's just a guess, because
I had the problem on a machine with less RAM and it went away on another
machine with more..., but than might have been a coincidence.
good luck
