Description of problem:
When xmms, with the xosd plugin installed from
http://psyche.freshrpms.net/rpm.html?id=111 , is launched from menu -> sound &
video it loads then just hangs. xmms loads fine if launched from a terminal.
I uninstalled xosd-xmms-1.0.4-fr1.i386.rpm just to be sure, xmms worked fine
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install xosd-xmms-1.0.4-fr1.i386.rpm from freshrpms.net

This sounds like an issue with that particular plugin. Maybe it hangs when

Just wanted to know if anyone else was experiencing this behaviour.
