I've run into similar issues.  There have been discussions here and
elsewhere about why Rhythmbox users keep XMMS around.  When I want to
play a new song that isn't (yet) in my library, I turn to XMMS - I might
be verifying the quality of the encode, it might not be in it's
permanent home in the file system, or the tags might not be cleaned up
yet - all reasons to hold off adding to the library.  So I have Nautilus
set to launch XMMS when I doubleclick an mp3.  Of course, once I've done
all the cleanup and I've added it to the library, Rhythmbox ensures I
may never need to look at those files again with Nautilus or any other
player, and Rhythmbox probably accounts for 98% of my mp3 listening, but
that 2%....
