Since some time I see the following warning whenever I open a file in 

$ mplayer a.mkv

[MENU] bad attribute auto-close=yes in menu 'open_list' at line 57

Playing a.mkv.

The offending line in /etc/menu.conf looks like this (and it's not line 
57, BTW):

<filesel name="open_list" file-action="loadlist '%p'" auto-close="yes"
          title="Open a playlist: %p"
          actions="d:run 'mp_loader \'%p\' d',c:run 'mp_loader \'%p\' c'" />

Is it okay to just remove 'auto-close="yes"' or is there maybe another, 
more correct way to handle this warning?
