Rhapsody songs skip ahead to next track unexpectedly over Slimserver.

When I am playing a selection of Rhapsody tunes using the Slimserver feeding my Squeezebox v3, without warning at any point in the track, it will skip ahead to the beginning of the next track. If I back up and play the previous track over again, it may not skip ahead at all or it may skip ahead at a different point. This does not occur when I am playing locally saved MP3 tracks over the Slimserver, only with Rhapsody tracks. It seems to make no difference if the Rhasody tracks are streamed or have been downloaded to the Rhapsody local directory.

This behavior just started a few weeks ago. Before that, Rhapsody playlists streamed flalessly over Slimserver. I have tried updating both Rhapsody and the SLimserver software to the latest release versions with no improvement.

Does anyone know how to fix this?
I am running:
