Here is a problem with 2.6.10:

while read file; do mplayer $file ; done <mediafiles.txt


tail -n93 mediafiles.txt | while read file; do mplayer $file ; done

for each file path in that text file I get:

Failed to open /dev/rtc: Permission denied (it should be readable by the user.)

^- This is also emitted by mplayer. It usually does this on any standard system.

In addition the audio pcm level is set to zero (presumably by mplayer).

This does work:
for file in `cat mediafiles.txt`; do mplayer $file ; done

but discovering and fixing code now broke will be unpleasent.
What exactly is going on?
