if copied across platforms
- removed Windows event monitor function for content dirs, as this blocked
renaming of files and even caused trouble when installing other programs.
Now on all systems the directory rescan is time based
- double entries for Internet Radio stations no longer accepted
- radio items now have the Genre property
- Radio proxy (Shoutcast) now resolves all available URLs for one station
until it finds one which is playable. Much more stable on radio stations
now

buttons per client
