Hm, to me, this looks as if the gui is expecting an answer from
mplayer but for some
reason missed it. Thanks to the while-loops that are all over in
gui.c, the gui would sit there waiting forever.

As such, control flow never returns to the ecore mainloop and the gui
aprears to "hang".

Intone should not use while loops when reading answers from mplayer,
or allow the loops to be broken
after an apropriate timeout...
