	Yes, realplay in in X11R6/bin, and is in my path::

q4 8:19 <tao> [7264] which realplay
q4 8:20 <tao> [7265] locate realplay | grep bin
q4 8:20 <tao> [7266] echo $PATH

	But for whatever reason, given an ".smil" file, mozilla defaults
	to realplay.  firefox gives me that obscure popup.  

	I'll add the "application-smil:" line to /etc/mailcap and 
	see if firefox gets a clue....
