	Here I'm running 4.10 anf the mplayerplugin port works
	nicely with mozilla.  On my laptop I've got 5.3-BETA7.
	mplayerplugin shows up, it pretends to be loading for 
	a few seconds.  It says "Playing" ... but
	no sound.

	Here, it pops up, then spends some N seconds buffering,
	and then the audio is loud and clear.  I just spent 
	two days portupgrading -fa on my laptop.  No difference.
	Anybody know what's going on?


	PS:  I'm almost ready to try 5.3-RELEASE #2 on another
	     server... will see if I can shuck every proprietary
	     audio app.  --FWIW.
