#47758, real hardware, run from usb stick.
Opening multiple files (over ten) so that processor chokes: You get the usual dropping frames on terminal, the deskbar freezes. When you close the media player windows one by one, deskbar becomes responsive again. Despite closing those windows, mediaplayer still has the associated au_control etc. processes attached to every mediaPlayey instance you opened. MediaPlayer wont respond to close app, you have to manually kill it from processcontroller. If you leave it be, you get the following crash (included).
After the crash mediaPlayer can be started again. But it starts in a zombie mode and gets stuck opening files.
