Audacious with normal gui causes problems with closeing, when i try close audacious i get message that "process is not responding, close it anyway ?" strange thing is if i click "no" i can change tacks and do anything else with it (so it is responding)

I don't have any of the issues you list, but beginning with Audacious 
2.2 I have seen a few others:
* The volume resets to 50% every time the song changes
* Song metadata / ID3 tags are not read for random sections of the 
playlist upon restarting Audacious.  When adding files to an empty 
playlist, this does not seem to be a problem.
* Random songs are missing from the playlist if audacious is closed and 
restarted - probably similar to the above
* Audacious locks up when rewinding to the beginning of any song - the 
player continues playing music, but the GUI hard locks until the process 
is kill -9'd.

None of these were issues with Audacious 2.1.  I'm on FreeBSD 8-RELEASE 
(amd64).  I believe it was also a problem when I was running 7-STABLE.
