Hi Chris. Thanks for the latest version of Sonic Visualiser. The only 
complaint I have, is that it's on Sourceforge servers. I'm on dialup, and 
have had to resume the download at least 12 times to get the package. 
Sourceforge isn't the only repo that creates problems for dialup users, as I 
constantly have the same problems with freshrpms and larger packages, VLC, 
and Mplayer as examples.

I'll have a nag at sourceforge, and freshrpm's to get their act together, and 
have a bit of consideration for dialup users.

Thanks again for the upgraded app.
