           Summary: arts usage is highly unreliable and causes crashes in
           Product: noatun
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kde-multimedia at kde.org
        ReportedBy: erayo at bilkent.edu.tr

Version:           2.3.3 (using KDE 3.1.92 (CVS >= 20031007), compiled sources)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.2 20030908 (Debian prerelease)
OS:          Linux (i686) release 2.4.21-xfs

While playing mp3s from noatun, any other disk/cpu-intensive process will not only interrupt playback (which may be regarded natural if it's beyond the capability of OS to switch back in time), but it will also halt the playback completely, say "cannot connect to arts server" etc. etc., usually followed by noatun crashing or exiting silently. Which I find highly annoying.

Has anybody else has seen this behavior?

It shouldn't be this difficult to play an mp3.
