Epic. iTunes. Fail.

iTunes 9 upgraded itself fine on my work Mac (I don't trust iTunes enough to install new versions on the Mac with my main library until it's been thoroughly tested). But, EPIC GODDAMN FAIL: clicking the green window button NO LONGER sends iTunes into 'MiniPlayer' mode. No, now there's a whole new #$&)(@# command for that, 'Switch To Miniplay' in the View Menu, with hotkey Cmd-Shift-M.

The window buttons still appear on the miniplayer. But this change means that if you have iTunes minimized into the MiniPlayer, and click the green button, it expands to fullscreen just like it used to. Great. But if you click it again, it instead behaves *differently* and sends iTunes to a different window size (presumably one you used prior) rather than back to the damn MiniPlayer.

Looks like they fixed this in the update shipped today.

Now if they could only make the DJ not do the exact opposite of what I often want it to.
