The command works as expected so the only possible explanation is user
error.  So either xine was running when you edited the config file, or
you didn't edit the right one as Torgeir Veimo suggested.  You have to
edit the config file for whichever user has started xine.  If you
started xine as root then edit /root/.xine/config, if you started it
as user timmy then /home/timmy/.xine/config, etc..  There is one more
option also.. You can use the -c command line switch to force xine to
use a certain config file:

xine -c /path/to/good/xine.config

Then you can verify the config contains the correct setting with:

[[ $(grep "^gui.dropped_frames_warning:0" /path/to/good/xine.config)
]] && echo "config is good :)" || echo "config is bad :("
