audio preview with gnome (nautilus) and i810 ???

hi there,
with my new vaio notebook the mp3 preview in nautilus isn't working anymore. i use the intel ich audio drivers and the latest ac-sources which are based on the 2.4.22 vanilla kernel. i installed mpg123 and enabled the mp3 preview in nautilus. i enabled to start the sound server with gnome. playing mp3s with xmms is no problem but the preview doesn't work. i tried to play files with mpg123 but didn't get any output.
btw, the little symbol appears when i point on mp3 files. but i nothing to hear.
any suggestions?

it should be solved if i could set the rate to 48khz somewhere in mpg123 ...

thanks in advance and greets,

I think you'll want to run mpg321 instead of mpg123 for Nautilus to behave well.
