Real Text hot linking problem

I am having a strange problem with RealText in a SMIL presentation.  I
wonder if anyone could help.  Here is the presentation online:


The problem is that the hot spot of the links are not always lining up
properly with the text that corresponds with the link.  For instance,
clicking on the words "Ostervesper und Fruhlingskeimen" does indeed initiate
the command to seek and play at the correct spot.  But clicking on the words
"Wagner: 'Euerer Magnifizenz Verzeihung'" actually initiates the command to
seek and play the following track: "Faust: 'Also lasst die Studenten ein'".
It seems to have something to do with my inserting non-linking text for the
section titles of the opera.

Here is the markup of the RealText file that goes with the first audio file:


<pos y="0"/>
