KsCD halting in the middle of tracks

I'm having a problem with KsCD in KDE 3.5.1 in SUSE Linux 10.1.

Sometimes the playback will just halt some way into a track, as if the CD had ended early. It appears to occur in consistent places on a CD. Any ideas what can be the cause?

In the KDE "Personal Settings" Audio CD section, the following is specified: Use Error Correction is ticked, and the Encoder Priority is set to Highest.

If running in console, the following error is produced at startup:

QWidget::setProperty( "text", value ) failed: property invalid, read-only or does not exist

No error appears when the playback stops.

Playback is fine if using digital playback via e.g. Kaffeine but this introduces gaps between tracks that I don't want.

I don't think it's a hardware problem since I had none of these problems before upgrading to SUSE 10.1 (and with it, from KDE 3.4.2 to 3.5.1) and SUSE recognises my drive (a DVD+RW/CDRW combo by NEC).

Any ideas what can be wrong?
