Hi Dean --

Don't think it's fixed... at least not in the 2/25 build at 8pm Eastern, just 2
hours ago.

Similar symptoms... Slimp3 and Squeezebox work fine. With only slimp3 playing,
cannot start a software player. iTunes hangs at "Reading Stream." When I start
the second physical player (a Squeezebox) the software player starts, but it's
trash, mixed pieces of other songs with cuts and jumps. At the same time, the
first player (slimp3) starts playing trash (mixed pieces, cuts and jumps) as
well.

Something is getting pretty confused with the mix of physical and software
players.

I'll keep trying the nightlies. Thanks, Dean, for attacking this.

-- Sally
