I' almost sure it's a bug

I have had the same problem every now and then.

Sometimes I try to close it and it won't close. My only solution has been to kill the process.

I have not identified any pattern when this happens. Sometimes it closes OK, sometimes it does not.

I think that doublefailure just wants xine to close after the movie is over, instead of going back to the dvd menu.

I also wish for this, but I am not sure if it is possible. This is why I use mplayer now, unless I want to see the dvd menu. See, if I want to put on a flick to fall asleep to, xine will just loop the dvd menu all night, whereas mplayer will close the movie and allow the screensaver to kick in...

ohhh, I get it! I was completely off track.

I never thought of it tht way. I would never have my computer in the bedroom. It has a VERY loud fan. I actually close the Den's door (across my bedroom) to sleep. (And the laptop does not have a DVD drive).

Besides, I don't watch tv in bed because... I fall asleep!! I need to be a little bit uncomfortable to actually finish a movie. I prefer to listen to the radio when I'm in bed.
