I didn't see the patch in mplayer's sources.  Looks like it was pushed
pretty hard, but was never actually committed:


In doing some more testing of the patch, I noticed that I can change
volumes, but if I hold the volume changer key down, mplayer locks up.
I'm CC'ing Lennart (as well as reattaching the patch) in case he may
know what's going on there.


P.S. I sent out a mail to some of the opensuse lists to see if there
were any plans on making utilizing pulseaudio as a default desktop
sound system.  Unfortunately, I haven't gotten much of a response...
seems like a really nice desktop solution.
