XMMS Re-Added

In March 18 2007, Pat decided to remove XMMS from Slackware official package and hoping for newer version of XMMS (which is XMMS2). Here's the changelog (taken from XMMS's website):
xap/xmms-1.2.10-i486-3.tgz: XMMS developers: THANK YOU for your years of dedication. We look forward to considering a new GTK+2 based design some time in the future. (Package removed).
What do you know? After one year without any *BIG* progress on XMMS2, Pat decided to re-add XMMS again on -Current today. It's still broken on "doublesize" though. Here's the latest -Current changelog:
Thu Sep 11 16:02:24 CDT 2008
xap/xmms-1.2.11-i486-1.tgz: Added xmms-1.2.11. This is an audio player that is similar to audacious, but uses about a third of the CPU power.
Please note that "doublesize" mode seems broken -- if it is enabled, XMMS will crash, and then will not start again until $HOME/.xmms is cleared out.
Any patch for this issue would be appreciated.

Welcome back XMMS!!. I know many people will love this love struck
