I have 100% as I press play.
On a side note, any way to repopulate the old RB stations list? I 
deleted it from .gnome2/rhythmbox, and on reinstall it's not 
automatically re-created. I just happened to love the ambient station 
:-) I'll just remove any setting from gconf and try to reinstall (never 
reinstalled a port so many times anyway).

Yes. I checked that before, I have it. Could this be a translation thing?
Maybe I should try with english.

But wasn't CURRENT -02 tolerant? I think I must have read this various 
times in posts. Anyway I'm only using -msse since last month, since I 
read that sse wasn't enabled with march athlon xp alone. Yes, I'm using 
that one too please don't kill me :-)  I've always used -02 -pipe and 
athlon xp before. What do you use? Anyway, back on track: I rebuilt RB 
with plain -0 -pipe. I did not rebuild gstreamer*, since amarok does not 
use 100% CPU if set to use gstreamer and radio. RB still uses 100%. Of 
course the large icon is still there. I cannot use a messed up menu like 
that :-)
If you still think I have to rebuild gstreamer* since it may _really be_ 
a major cause, I may take the hassle of typing that 2 lines, me lazy 
bastard :-)
