[MPlayer-users] BUG: "mplayer -identify" now plays

When using mplayer from CVS from several weeks ago, running "mplayer
-identify foo.avi" would printout the identifying information, and then
exit.  Now (a more recent CVS), running "mplayer -identify foo.avi" will
first print out the identifying information, and then play the avi.

I believe the whole point of -identify is for use in a script to do
processing, etc, and that is a time when you would not want mplayer to
actually play the video, only identify it.
