First noticed in non-English versions of the application, ogg123 has a major
bug when it comes to status messages in the shell: any output bigger than
the console's width will break and start spamming that message infinitely
until the console is resized.
Different attempts to fix this bug have ended up causing bigger problems,
leading to the conclusion that it simply can't be fixed without a large
re-write of the application, which will not happen any time soon. If you
come across this issue, please augment your terminal window size.
