Is probably best to postpone wildcard expansion until the last moment

thanks for this clarification! until yesterday, whe you
mmentioned blanks[whitespace], as id a song title, i hadn't
tought about songs like "Not Ready to Make Nice.ogg" e.g.
I am not sure why these players store the song in wav format
without deleting the files, but when my limited /tmp is full,
certain aps fail mysteriously. with a fwdozen more line of code
they could at least fail more gracefully.
You might consider adding something like
setenv TMPDIR /home/dkelly/tmp
setenv TMP /home/dkelly/tmp
to your ~/.cshrc (or whatever appropriate for the shell you are
using). This moves "/tmp" for cooperative applications into private
space where you might have more room. Of course KDE is probably
starting via a different route. Or maybe not.
