Are you sure this is fixed? It still uses loads and loads more CPU than 
a plainer MP3 player... (With the GUI completely hidden...) It's not 
clear where that CPU time is used for. (I can't test anymore on that 
older system, but even on my fast C2Q CPU it uses a considerable amount 
of CPU. 3 or 4% CPU for playing a simple MP3 file on a 3.2GHz Q9450 is 
just crazy, if you ask me.

Grtjs, Manuel
