I've just upgrade my system from 4.99.31 to 4.99.35, as compiled
last night.  One effect is that MPlayer is no longer playing
ReadAudio streams:  the codec can't be loaded due to a undefined
PLT symbol "__lxstat".

 I could have sworn this has worked previously, though it has been
a while since I've played a RealAudio track.  Does this ring any
