gnome 2.8.1 - how to change the default cd player

Sorry to post this to such a busy forum, but if there was a 'gnome' forum I would have posted there....

I am running Debian Unstable with Gnome 2.8.1

When I try and access Application > Desktop Preferences > CD & DVD, the aplication crashes saying 'The Application gnome-cd-properties has quit unexpectidly'.

This means that I am stuck with 'gnome-cd' as the default player which automatically loads when I put an audio cd in the drive. Googling around seems to tell me this is a known bug in this version of Gnome

Does anyone no how to manually change this so xmms starts up by default?

Yeah the Gnome CD things are buggy. I stopped installing them about a year ago. If you want Xmms to start, why don't you just start xmms? Totem and Xine are also worth trying too. Also, there is a Gnome forum but it's a bit quiet.
