Hello Jerome,

Yes, I had exactly the same problem. In my game "Rocks'n'Diamonds",
it therefore looks like the following:

    /* Mix_VolumeMusic() must be called _after_ Mix_PlayMusic() --
       this looks like a bug in the SDL_mixer library */
    Mix_PlayMusic(mixer[audio.music_channel].data_ptr, -1);

This seems to be a bug in SDL_mixer! I think this was already reported
to the list by somebody some time ago.

If not: Can anyone of the SDL_mixer maintainers comment on this? Ryan?
