You need to patch xine-lib to do that. But first I suggest you try out
with smaller pictures to confirm the reason. What is the resolution of
the pictures?

See the README file under "Media player key bindings for video files":

Green        Jump 1 min back
Yellow       Jump 1 min forward
1, User8     Jump 20 s back
3, User9     Jump 20 s forward

Try xine-ui with the same file. If that works, compare files
~/.xine/config and ~/.xine/config_xineliboutput for any differences.
