What I'm hoping to find is a nice central one or two line change. however, if
you are using the windows EXE, that's not an easy thing to change :)

Once something looks ok, I can always put it into the subversion system so that
it comes out in the next nightly build. You can report on that too.

I've commited a possible fix that will be part of the March 13 nightly build.
Please give that a test and let us know how it works out for you.

this should now allow a proper update with slimp3, and older squeezeboxen with
local songs and with radio streams.
