<p>Doh, I looked for a good hour or two trying to track that down.  Glad I 
just asked and didn't needlessly spend longer than I had to.  It works 
great now, thanks!

I guess I'll have to take to look at xmms.org and winamp.com now to see 
if they're aware of the problem, I did a bit of digging at bugs.xmms.org 
before my initial email, but didn't find anything.

Thanks again.
