Thanks so much, Beech.

I have no idea why the last upgrade of xmms caused the default to switch
output devices, but it did on all 3 of my systems and switching back to
OSS fixed it right up.

That said, I still plan to move to xmms2 after my system finishes
rebuilding all of its ports this weekend after my move from RELENG_7 to
HEAD. (I normally run HEAD, but I stay on a new version until it is

Thanks again!
