I see that my reply yesterday went only to Peter.  Resending, with typo 
corrected, to list.

Thank you, Peter.  Playback and skipping are working well for me with 
that 32-bit build and my (Pre903 + PR642) backend.  There's very brief 
block-on-skip with Klaas' old sample, but in general skipping looks 
cleaner than with my nVidia GT710 and 470 driver.

Of course I'm still not getting sound, because I'm driving an old Dell 
monitor through an HDMI-to-DisplayPort adapter, but the pictures are fine.
