Am I correct that this is completely unrelated to the mplayer.log you posted below?
Note that MPlayer is bad at displaying videos at the exact frame-rate of the screen you are using, so if your video is 23.976 fps and the screen 23.976 (or 24) Hz, frame drops (and A/V desync if you are not using -framedrop) have to be expected.
There are at least a patch and a fork that claim to fix this problem, Carl Eugen
