The Popup Information preferences don't have any effect in the default GTK UI
In the latest releases Audacious started coming by default with the GTK user interface enabled.
As a consequence of this, some controls in the Playlist preferences (the 'Show popup information for playlist entries' and the Miscellaneous section in the 'Popup Information Settings' dialog box) don't have any meaning anymore, unless the Winamp Classic Interface is selected instead of the default one.
One possible solution is to specify 'in the Classical Interface' (or similar) in these controls labels, to make clear that they only have effect in the Winamp Classic Interface.
Another solution, a better one imo, is to move the 'Cover image retrieve' preferences away from the Popup Information Settings dialog box into a more appropriate location (like a new dialog box in the 'Metadata' section) and just rename the 'Popup Information' section as 'Classic Interface' or similar (see attached mockup).
