I was dinking with Xine's setup and it all went to heck. So I went into
the .xine directory, renamed config to config.orig and then cranked up
xine again. It now works just fine. Since Kaffine uses Xine as it's
engine, quite possibly you may have broken something when editing
Kaffine's setup. It's worth a shot. :) Ric
