There's definitely something weird going on. Altough madplay does play
the file, alsaplayer is a bit more picky. mpg123 0.59r gives a lot of
weird errors on this file too. The find_initial_frame() function
correctly skips the ID3 tag, but it looks like there is more non-MPEG
information right after the end of the ID3 tag. I will check if this is
fixable. This is why I prefer .ogg files over .mp3 anyday :-)

socket interface! (Ok, I'll stop mentioning this until I have a
working version :-)
