    Couple of bugs discovered in 5/19 nightly

    Actually clearing the cache didn't do anything... It is now not showing the
    artist/album counts at all (this is with the fishbone skin) it simply says
    that it is still scanning... And scanning ... And scanning.

    I'm more confused about the "albums" appearing twice...where is this?
    the counts themselves can be different depending on any file types you have.
    If you click "wipe cache" in teh performance settings, do the counts appear
    differently, better or worse?

    the 64k setting is probably left over from an old bug in an earlier nightly.
    320 should be the default for all but wired squeezebox, and should perform
    fine.
    May 20 nightly adds a bit more feedback on whether or not the LAME binary is
    found, or causes playback to fail.

    This issue should now be fixed in CVS, and will appear in the May 20
    nightly.

    thanks for the reports.
