Anyone aware of issues with PlayCD on AmigaOS 4.1 FE?

After some time away from AmigaOS4, I was using my system today, and had several random freezes when I tried to launch PlayCD from my AmiDock. Also froze once when launching from PlayCD icon in Utilities drawer.

Never seen anything like that. Was there any serial output? Crash log? Or did the system just freeze?

I didn't get a Grim Reaper or crash log. System simply froze up solid. I will see if I can set up a serial connection.

What are your PlayCD tooltypes?

edit: iirc there was one set by default who could freeze the system on NG Amigas, forgot which

Update ...

I finally solved this issue on January 14, 2017 ...

Replaced the PlayCD program from AmigaOS 4.1 FE with the one on my AmigaOS 4.0 July 2007 Update disc.
PlayCD Version 52.1 (10/12/2006) works fine with Mixer 1.41 currently on my system.
