hi -
  I recompiled with --disable-ncurses and am still having the same issue. I am
currently recompiling with --enable-debug --disable-ncurses --disable-alsa (use
oss currently). Can you help me with some pointers as to debugging this issue ?
is there anything similar to -d:255 i can do to get more info ? i tried an
strace, but that provided little usefull information.

  Thank you again for your help.
