I use gtk, but only because it looks better and feels much faster. There
are less audio-dropouts using motif.

Very much, seems to be.

I have to confess I have known about this for a long time without
reporting it (so much things to do).
My guess is that when the player reach the end of the selection,
the stop-playing-hook is called before actually stopping
the playing. What happens is that the stop-playing-hook
code (the function "c-play-selection2" in snd_conffile.scm)
starts playing another time before the other one was
stopped. And then I have a feeling that for some reason
"c-play-selection2" is called yet another time when the
first playing really stops, which it shouldn't. If that
makes sense... At least I certainly think theres something
different with the stop-playing-hook handling thats causing
