The demuxer does exist and is listed as such when xine starts, yet it is not 
used. I found that the catalog.cache in ~/.xine was the cause, as it lacked 
the ogg demuxer. Deleting that file creates a fresh copy which includes the 
ogg demuxer and makes sound work again. I'll attach the diff of those two 

I guess this is a xine bug, as it should update its cache. though I'm not sure 
what should trigger the update though.

Thanks for the hints!
