Description of problem:
if I try to play an MP3 file, I get a window explaining why MP3 isn't included
in Red Hat. in this window, there is a check box for "do not tell me again"
which is ON by default. if you try to turn it off, you'll get another window.
and so on.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.select an MP3 file
2.click check box
(it's a bit hard to reproduce, since the bug makes it impossible to ask xmms to
keep bugging you about this. I didn't bother to delete my xmms configuration
file to test.)
Actual Results: a new window pops up.
Expected Results: the check box should be deselected.
This happens once per MP3 in your playlist, problematic if you have hundreds in
your playlist. The entire system crawled for several minutes back in Phoebe1
when this happened.
As expected... it will pop up once for every attempt to open an mp3 unless you
Warren's comment is related, but a different issue from the bug. you closed it
on the wrong grounds. the bug is that it is impossible not to disable it, and
in the attempt to not disable it, a new popup will appear for each attempt.
anyway, I think it is a bit arrogant to say that it is expected behaviour when a
user experiences an application bringing his computer to a crawl for no good
reason. this is actually one case where a modal dialogue makes sense. xmms
should not progress to the next file in the playlist until the user as
acknowledged the explanation. if the user selects "please bug me again" (which
doesn't work, which is what _this_ bug is all about), he will get another popup,
but of course, the user explicitly asked for it in that case.
I can't reproduce this. I created a playlist with a number of MP3s,
hit play, and only got one dialog. Please reopen if you still have a
