[MPlayer-users] problem with -cache and playlists

I notice that the memory allocated (if you use a -cache switch) when
playing from a playlist is not freed up before memory is again allocated
for the next file.

Checked with MPlayer 0.90rc5-3.2 which is actually 0.90

For example, if I use

mplayer -cache 20000 *mp3

memory used by mplayer increases by ~20M for each file played. This was
easily visible using top.
