Funny, I have the same problem when using GQMPEG to play certain
files. MP3s generally play okay, but MP2s will squeak.

On one track (Miyazaki's Mononoke Hime) it sounds like someone's
strangling a chicken. If I ever get the time I'm gonna try another codec,
see if it matters. Just out of curiosity, are your music encoded at VBR?
