Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: amarok-xine

Some time ago, there was a similar bug, that prevented one from playing FLACs. It appears the same bug is present for *.shn files.
Whenever I try to play a Shorten file, Amarok says "no stream present". Seems like xine wasn't reporting an audio stream, so Amarok refused to even try to play it.

I bugged a xine developer, who fixed this bug in xine-lib cvs: 
http://xine.cvs.sourceforge.net/xine/xine-lib/src/demuxers/demux_shn.c?r1=1.1.2.2&r2=1.2

Could this fix be included in the amarok-xine package that will be in
edgy? It's just a few lines of code :-)
