Unfortunately, it doesn't remember what you click, but rather, what you type.
This is unfortunate because sometimes the link isn't obvious.  For example,
on this page:


it's very difficult to get the Shoutcast URLs.  They *really* want you to
click on their "Tune In!" links, which doesn't get picked up by "visited
locations".  Only URLs that actually get typed in seem to go into that list.

It looks like I might be hand editing xmms's config file to insert Shoutcast
stations.  :(
