Alsaplayer not playing Streams mad_open() failed

My alsaplayer on the new amd64 box doesn't seem to be able to
accept an *.m3u file as imput if I put in the URL for the stream it works fine
~$ alsaplayer

and it takes *.mp3 files just fine but I get a "mad_open() failed" message if I input a *.m3u or *.pls file
here is the file I've been trying.

~$ cat kusc96.m3u

this works as input on my 32 bit machine with out problems.

I'm baffeled


**EDIT*** Problem Solved ! It turns out that what was hanging it up was the MS-eol ^M in the *.m3u file. Once I edited it out it all works fine!
