Well that makes me feel a little better anyway!
I've looked all through the preferences dialogs, quite a few times
by now. The obvious one is Visualization Mode, which can be set to "Off".
But I've set it "Scope" or "Analyzer" with no success. (This is the same
as single-clicking on the visualization display, which is supposed to
toggle it on or off.) It just seems that the display is receiving a signal
of zero, even though I am hearing the music.
I've looked all around in the Visualization (and other) plugins. I can
enable any of them (I have Blur Scope, OpenGL Spectrum analyzer, Simple
spectrum analyzer, and XMMS MSA), and they start up normally, showing, you
guessed it, zero signal.
Thanks to both of you for helping me try to solve this. Maybe it's a bug.
