This was probably caused by the same error as below

This error comes because you are not using python 2.5. I
have fixed the problem now in svn.It should work with
older pythons now. I dont have testet it my selves since i
dont have any pc with python 2.4. Please tell me if it
is still not working.

I cant get any of them to work properly.

Dont think I'm am going to do a merge, but I am open for
feature requests or other feedback, but I think a plug-in
like this should be kept relatively simple. Playlist
selection is coming. Fading is already implemented, but
it is hard coded to 10 seconds only. I can put in a gconf
key for it, but dont think it is necessary to have that
in the GUI.
