gdk-pixbuf bug: Precise
Hi Barry,

On numerous occasions we have discussed how the loaders.cache file for gdk-pixbuf should be updated. I first brought it to your attention on your old blog:

In Precise it has come back to bite. See the user's complaint and my explanation of why it happens:

Guys, please DO NOT install Pmusic 2.9.9 or be very careful. I tried it under older Slacko 5.3.3 but it opens Pequalizer only. Then starts playing stream from - no chance to kill aplay, ffmpeg or anything: keeps playing even after CTRL-Backspace.
Zigbert, could you check and fix please?

pmusic uses ffmpeg?
Clicking a music file
breaks any ffmpeg running process
in speedy 5.2.2 (my favorite puppy until now).

I had to uninstall the excellent pmusic
in order to avoid this accident.

Re:pmusic uses ffmpeg?
Will you please keep pMusic feedback to the pMusic thread. Thank you!

Regarding ffmpeg trouble, you should tell what pMusic version you are running. I tested now with converting a movie with FFconvert while I started pMusic 3 and navigated in tracks. No problem.
