Thanks, I'll have to take a look.  If it does, then I can avoid the
issue entirely.  I seem to recall that the current structure didn't
lend itself to using the direct streaming model developed for players
after the SliMP3, but things may have changed.  Also -- and this may
have changed as well -- squeezeslave doesn't work well with using
certain bit-rates.  I'll take a look.
