If that patch also doesn't work, we need to track the position update
sequence in more details.
The patch below will dump the each position update (CAUTION: it can be
long logs!). Please apply it instead of the previous one, run with
xrun_debug=5 on 2.6.31 (or xrun_debug=1 on 2.6.30), and give the
outputs around a skip occurs.

Takashi
