I never had the WxWidget interface work properly on multiprocessors, with 
heavy playlist churn (SAP...). And if it is so, I would assume Qt4 is going 
to exhibit the same problems. Then I wonder what the point was in these 27 
months (and still counting) of waiting for the new UI.

At least, if the input manager looked like it worked... but it is clearly 
totally broken at the moment, in _practice_ [1]. Also, it is quite 
paradoxical that VLC, an application that's been using real multithreading 
for years, is the one that _sucks_ when you move from UP to SMP.

But hey, _I_ am totally not going to fix the Qt4 UI myself, so if you don't 
care about SMP, I won't do anything (besides continuing to claim that the VLC 
UI sucks badly and that Qt4 is hardly better that Wx).
