I'm on Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic), using 'MPlayer SVN-r29237-4.4.1 (C) 2000-2009 MPlayer Team'.

I often work through large torrented batches of music, saving the very rare one worth keeping. When I do find one I like, obviously I wish to let it keep playing. So I copy-paste the filename and mv it elsewhere. But the default mplayer format looks like this:

'Playing 10._kaze_no_mon-ami.ogg.'

If I double-click (in X/Urxvt), I get '10._kaze_no_mon-ami.ogg.' because '.' isn't a word-break but ' ' or a newline is. So when I paste it, I have to remove the trailing period.

I'd like the trailing period simply omitting. That line isn't even a grammatically correct English sentence anyway (no subject), so it's not necessary to include a period. This would also make copy-paste easier for me.

(I can't think of any downsides to this that someone might object to. But maybe I'm overly optimistic.)
