I'm currently working on rebuilding my whole 0.6.x tree so I can make a
proper fix. I've made it a blocker because it really *is* a blocker. For
4kB, it doesn't matter, but 150kB mp3s or oggs are fairly normal, and
they should just work.

Anyway, "working on it", I'll let you know when I've got a fix.

I've tried, simply by looking at how mplayer, xine & co do it, but their
code is incomprehensible and their CVS log didn't help at all (i.e., it
didn't show anything obvious). I guess we'll have to ask Walken.

I'm looking into this too, but I'm currently quite clueless.
