Is it only realplayer that does this or are any other apps borking in
a similar fashion?
Have you grepped the logs for errors?
Anything in dmesg when this issue happens?
Tried updating the box via rhn?
# up2date -u ; up2date -f kernel
I've never heard of that, then again, never used realplayer on RHEL
