When clicking on a link at rtvnh.nl firefox and mplayerplug-in load an ASX file from the host and mplayer is started with -playlist option

The tempfile contains this:
<asx version="3.0">
<title>De Voorkamer</title>
<entry>
<title>De Voorkamer</title>
<ref href="http://stream.rtvnh.nl/De_Voorkamer/voorkamer_20070508-202808.wmv">
</entry>
</asx>

and the debug of mplayerplug-in shows this mplayer command:
Starting: mplayer -wid 0x2408918 -ao arts -osdlevel 1 -nojoystick -noconsolecontrols -cookies -softvol -slave
-user-agent NSPlayer -nomouseinput -cache 512 -playlist /tmp/mplayirW3tI

Further down in the debug log I see that mplayer thinks that each line of the playlist file has a URL.

READ: File not found: '/tmp/<asx version="3.0">'

READ: Failed to open /tmp/<asx version="3.0">.

This is on a debian system with the following packages:
mozilla-mplayer 3.40-0.1 (from http://www.debian-multimedia.org etch/main)
firefox 2.0.0.2+dfsg
mplayer 1:1.0-rc1svn20070225 (from http://www.debian-multimedia.org etch/main)

    After a closer at the ASX I see that the <ref..> tag is invalid. There is a missing />

    Sorry for the noise.
