btw, do you know any other player that handles daap better in linux?
Sadly, no. I found rhythmbox the most stable, but kind of feature-poor. Banshee I had a number of problems with — cpu utilization, slow scanning speed, other stuff.
Amarok I kind of liked, but I’m normally running gnome, and loading all the kde stuff seems so bloated, I don’t run it. Not that gnome is svelte, but the two of them together… blarg.
Consequently, I use rhythmbox and just kind of live with the missing features.
