I see this in strace output with default configuration. Switching the
setting between on-display and on-load makes it even worse, then it
opens every file THREE times. Sorry, wtf?
Further, it has broken SIGTERM handling. Unless I am able to find such
visible problems within minutes, this program is no replacement for the
good old XMMS.

I don't want to have it entirely deactivated, I want it to work then and
only then when I need this information.
