Good to know.  I've mostly abandoned Ruby, but still use dtas
every day, too :>

Is that from a loose USB cable?  Sometimes they wear out if
you're constantly unplugging/replugging it.

I think it actually tries everything in the queue and fails
every single one before stopping.  I honestly haven't looked
at the code in a long time.

Not sure.  I'm not sure if play(1) exits with enough info to
know it's a recoverable error or not.  I'll have look into it
when I get the chance (maybe in a few weeks, been busy on
other stuff).
