 I will be looking at this today. David Symons has also found an
"interesting" bug in the usb/sshfs menus that needs attention.

Yes, the rtsp ( Real Media ) links seem to use a large cache or
something - they take a *long* time to start playing. The mms and mp3
or ogg links are faster to start. I'm not really sure how this works to
be honest...

That might be nice - but there is a space issue here. If you have
several file systems mounted you run out of lines unless some options
are side by side.

Yes. No idea how to change that at the moment :) It's built in to the
Ubuntu code somewhere. I'm not going to mess around with that at this

Well, I think probably fairly soon we can make it something like
"INX-2-RC-1" , but there's a shortage of testing. It *seems* to be
mostly OK, but I'm not seeing a lot of feedback from team members, with
a few exceptions ;-)

(Hint, hint to some others... Thanks for the report, Andre!)
