Description

Hi,

If a fifo called "mplayer" are on the current path, mplayer cannot be lauched.

Exemple:
## There is no fifo yet. Everythings works.
$ mplayer 04\ A\ Dream\ Within\ a\ Dream.flac
MPlayer SVN-r30554-4.4.4 (C) 2000-2010 MPlayer Team
[...]
Starting playback...
A: 1.0 (01.0) of 340.0 (05:40.0) 1.7%
Exiting... (Quit)

## Create fifo and do same job.
$ mkfifo mplayer
$ mplayer 04\ A\ Dream\ Within\ a\ Dream.flac
Killed

## We MUST kill -9: mplayer are frozen.

## If we specify full path of mplayer, it works again, with fifo.
$ /usr/bin/mplayer 04\ A\ Dream\ Within\ a\ Dream.flac
MPlayer SVN-r30554-4.4.4 (C) 2000-2010 MPlayer Team

Playing 04 A Dream Within a Dream.mp3.
[...]
Starting playback...
A: 0.7 (00.6) of 340.0 (05:40.0) 1.8%
Exiting... (Quit)

Problem expected on Gentoo, i686 and amd64.
