    Server hanging (iTunes updater???)

    How does one turn off the iTunes Updater plugin?
    I tried to set it to STOP form the SLIMp3, but it always re-inits
    with it on....

    this problem cam up before, and this was the last message given by the author:
    http://lists.slimdevices.com/archive...er/034800.html

    the main concept is that the updater cant communicate properly when the server
    is run as a service. disabling the plugin may not work if the author has not
    written the plugin to obey the disabling.
