Well, the development tree is a bit strange in this way, but while 0.92
is a successor of 0.90final, 1.0 is forked from (afair) 0.90rc4, so it is
possible that some problems disappear, but I wouldn't count on it.

That's cool! This indicates that 1.0pre4 probably will play those files

Thanks, I'll add this patch for the pre3 port!
