Music Manager Updates

A new feature in Goggles Music Manager I just implemented is the ability to play a song in an already running gmm remotely from for example a file browser or commandline. I basically use a fifo to check for a running gmm and send the requested filename through the fifo to the existing gmm.

Right now I basically open the fifo on the 'server' side in Read/Write mode. I was hoping to use the nonblocking method (and without the Write Mode), but somehow things get messed up when I use select to watch the file descriptor.
