  I notice the skips tend to be right after launching the player and
starting playback of a large playlist.  They coincide with the reading
of all files in the playlist for length which maxes out the CPU until
all the files are read.  Ditto on the bizarre attempts to connect to
the network when a playlist file is missing.  Very annoying if you've
moved things and the entire playlist is composed of missing files
since regardless of being in online/offline mode you'll get dialog
boxes and errors.
