A Debian user just filed this report on kaffeine. When I tried to reproduce
the issue, kaffeine-mozilla attempted to launch kaffeine (I saw the file
transfer dialog, then nothing) and seemed to fail. A 'ps auxw' showed that
kaffeine was zombied. I tried the same thing several times, and sometimes
when I ran 'ps auxw' after trying to get kaffeine-mozilla to launch kaffeine,
there were no kaffeine processes listed - not even defunct ones.
Has anyone else seen this issue? Before I start debugging I thought I'd ask :)
I haven't tested it against CVS - I'm building a copy now.

I've found this with the BBC web pages. They stream programs as real audio
(-which is a well-known pain). The kaffeine-mozilla plugin insists on
launching kaffeine for rpm files, then it just
hangs, and has to be killed. It'd be nice if it worked, or as a work around
if I could change kaffeine-mozilla to not recognise rpm files.
