Okay, I figured out that one - the default Buffer Size is 0, so it
hangs in http_buffer_loop waiting for some buffer space it'll never
get...  Adding some buffer solves that :) (Or changing the default
buffer size).

Next issue is that it stops before the end of the stream - I suspect
when it completes streaming/downloading, and not playing.

Thought of these, but I want to be able to distribute this to people
and not have to ask them to disable their mp3 plugin or recompile
xmms. I'd like to dispel rumours that *nix isn't user friendly :)
