Hi all

I've compiled MPlayer-1.0rc2 on these two systems, and it works fine when 
running one instance on both the Suse and Ubuntu box.

However when I try running multiple instances, the Suse box starts complaining 
about "Could not grab port 65". Anything I can do to make it work on the Suse 
box, or should I just upgrade it?
