Yes I did.

No I am not shure about it.

You have guessed right. I already tried /home/pedro/cddb

I have tried (after your message)

xplaycd*cddb:	/home/pedro/cddb
XPlaycd*cddb:	/home/pedro/cddb
Xplaycd*cddb:	/home/pedro/cddb

And I have seted in the app-defaults/XPlaycd file

*cddb /home/pedro/cddb

One thing that I already tried and maybe can explain (or not) the
problem it is the following

i)I have putted in my .Xresource file the line

xplaycd*title Title

ii)then I did xrdb ~/.Xresourced

iii)then I call xplaycd

What happens is: the xplaycd window appears first with the title
"Title" but then it change again for (the default!?) "XPlaycd".
