What version of WMP generated that playlist?

greetings,
I just received my SqueezeBox 2, and installed Slim
Server 6.0.1.

It works fine, but I have one problem:

When I try to access a playlist (which was generated
with Windows Media Player), my SlimServer goes away
(crashes presumably). The one possible interesting
thing about my setup is that I have a VERY
large library, although this particilar playlist is
very small. Is this a known problem, or is there a
way to collect more data about the issue? I've seen
mention of a logfile, but where do I find that? I'm
running Windows XP. Thanks.

Bruce

I'm not in front of it at the moment, but I'm
99% sure it's version 10.

WMP 10 generates relative instead of absolute paths in the playlists.

That's a regression; 5.4 supported relative paths just fine. Can this
be prioritized for the 6.1 branch, please?

I've added a comment to the bug trail.

I tried adding the absolute path and it still crashes
the server. Here's my entire playlist file:

<?wpl version="1.0"?>
<smil>
<head>
<meta name="Generator" content="Microsoft Windows Media Player -- 10.0.0.3646"/>
<author/>
<title>play1</title>

also note, this is a .wpl file not an m3u file.
It looks like wpl files started with WMP 10.
