I bet if you install xmms, you'll find that it starts to work.

This is probably my fault. For KDE 3.5, I added a hack to remove xmms from 
the dependencies of kicker-applets, since I found that it would still load 
without it. This way, users weren't forced to install xmms to use 

But obviously my testing wasn't thorough enough. Today I managed to 
reproduce your problem once, but now I can't do it again.... very odd.

Anyway, since I still don't want to force xmms on all kicker-applets users, 
I think it reasonable to simply disable xmms support for the next upload, 
and point users who want a kicker applet for xmms to xmms-kde, which looks 
better anyway. It's only in unstable at the moment, but is only being held 
out of testing by a missing hppa build, so it should make testing 

Sorry about the hassle. Of course, let me know if installing xmms still 
doesn't fix it.
