Strange.  I can't reproduce after trying a few, working, rock stations.

Deleting the GConf settings is probably the way to go.

Could be.  I am using en_US.ISO8859-1 as my locale.

Well, I always build everything with default CFLAGS, and I rarely run
into problems.  As soon as -O2 becomes the default in the mk files (it's
not AFAIK), then I will use that.
