    I have used Clementine for a while, great player. Not as good as Amarok1.4 but it works. Installed 1.3 yesterday and now I can’t get it to quit. It leaves three Zombies process’s hanging around and I have to kill each with kill -9.

    I will still use it but wrote a script that will kill it when I’m done cause I don’t like no Zombies process’s!
