[CentOS] Damaged tags in XMMS

I just copied 15 GB of Music from my Slackware install over to my laptop
running CentOS. Everything's running fine, except a few minor quirks.
About 10 to 15% of the 4.000 songs in my collection seem to have broken
ID3 tags in XMMS. In the playlist window, there are only truncated
fields of a few random letters appearing. 

But when I right-click on one of these songs, the ID3 info is displayed
correctly... that is, in the ID 3 window. I can save as much as I can,
the info in the ID3 window stays the same. 

Any suggestion for that?
