[Slackbuilds-users] Issues with newest spotify SlackBuild

Hi all,

I have been running a homebrewed installation of the official Spotify  
client successfully for quite some time. Last week I wanted to upgrade  
to a newer version and saw (to my delight) that the SlackBuild seems  
to have been updated, so I gave that a try. Since Spotify removes  
older version I had to use the latest package  
(spotify-client_0.9.4.183.g644e24e.428-1_amd64.deb (I'm running a  
multilib Slackware 14.0.)) and update the version number in the  
SlackBuild, but from there on it went quite smoothly. While I can log  
in, even using my Facebook credentials, and play music (the things  
that seem to usually cause the most grief) I have two issues: (A) Most  
panels (my suspicion is, it's those that get filled using HTML),  
basically everything except the top and left-hand menus and the main  
song list, remain completely blank, and (B) the client doesn't use  
JACK anymore. Unfortunately I deleted my previous package, but it was  
something around 0.8.3 IIRC, where both of those issues did not show.  
Has anyone experienced similar issues?
