    Slimp3 Player on Mac OS X Jaguar, 300MHz G3

    Here's a test...

    - Started with a clean iTunes... Deleted all the Library and moved the
    files out of the music folder. Everything is in default locations.
    - Ripped first six songs from Beatles #1 album. So, iTunes has only six
    songs.

    From this clean situation, the player works FINE on the Jaguar machine,
    from either the remote OR the web interface.

    So, I have a problem that's dependent either on
    - the specific music files
    - the number of songs.

    I'll do some more experiments. When the server gets stuck, there is
    nothing interesting in top or the log (in /private/tmp).

    Is there any problem with mp3 files from eMusic?

    Hi Sally,

    Try adding in some of the old songs in groups and see if you can narrow
    it down to a specific song or songs.
