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/archives/discuss/2004-September/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.
