Description of problem:
When I change any of xmms' options or change its state (e.g. toggle shuffle
mode), exit xmms, and then start it again, the option/state reverts back to its
old value. This includes options in the "Options" tab of xmms, switching skins,
toggling shuffle mode, toggling the  windowshade status of a window, and the
position in the playlist.

If I look in .xmms/config after exiting xmms, the old value is still in there.
If I then edit .xmms/config manually and restart xmms, it sees the new value.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start xmms
2. Toggle shuffle mode on
3. Exit xmms (by clicking on the X in the corner)
4. Start xmms again

Actual Results:  Shuffle mode was turned off.

Expected Results:  Shuffle mode should have been on.

Never mind. I thought the bug was a result of upgrading to rawhide xmms, but it
turns out to be an interaction between xmms and a plugin I installed at around
the same time. Removing the plugin fixed the problem. Will follow it up with the
xmms developers.

I'm going to change the bug state to NEEDINFO, or should it be CLOSED?
