I had this weird experience a week ago,,,  I was compiling a sound application 
and it over wrote a part of my libc in some way and caused my xmms that I 
used to play old radio shows on my second audio card to fail...  I didn't 
notice it until I tried to use xmms the other day... now I got to figure out 
which one did the deed...  that should be great fun <heh>

awww well... all in a days work <heh>
