After upgrading from 1.0pre6a to 1.0pre7, mplayer couldn't play DVDs anymore.
Same build flags, same system, same libraries underneath.  This looks like
something to do with CSS, but I don't know for sure.

After purging mplayer of its known CSS keys and trying to load a new DVD,
the appropriate directory would be created in ~/.mplayer/DVDKeys, but it
would be completely empty.
