Re: "[mi] EQ overflowing. The server is probably stuck in an infinite loop."
and to add another interesting thing, memory usage on the desktop has been raised, this is a 64bit KDE 4.4.5 w/ KWin OpenGL Composition active:
270.18 or older: <130Mb out of 1024Mb
270.26: >220Mb out of 1024Mb
Using VDPAU for clips and such will temporarely raise the memory usage while playing but it just gets back at ~124Mb after Mplayer stops on 270.18 or older.
