Ok, my fault (partly at least): somewhere along the road the path to 
xmame was reset to its default value (which doesn't work in my case) but 
being so similar I just missed it every time. Only by putting some debug 
messages in the code did I finally find it ;-)

So, now it's scanning okay, but the game tree still doesn't show any 
games (just MAME). I checked tha database and the games have been added 
correctly. So I guess I'll add some more debug messages.

Isaac: maybe it would be helpfull to put in some messages when things 
like this go wrong? I can submit a patch but I wondered what your 
preferred method would be for such a thing? Just a cerr << "error 
message"? Or is there some global log to write to? Or would a pop-up 
telling the user that MAME isn't configured correctly be even better? If 
so are there any generic functions for simple pop-ups like that? (looked 
at some code for pop-ups, but it seemed like a lot of code for such a 
simple thing).
