Thanks for the tips; I wasn't aware of these programs. I downloaded the xmms-cueinfo source and and compiled it, and it works ok. I'll check out lampip shortly.

I found this interesting parenthetical comment about .cue files on the xmms-cueinfo homepage:

(The reason people do this is because of the audible gaps that occur when the software switches between two files. However, these gaps are generally shorter in unix-based operating systems than in Windows due to the simpler file I/O subsystem. There are also no-gap plugins for many players now, so there aren't really any good reasons for ripping CDs like this nowadays.)
So, perhaps .cue files will eventually fall out of favor.
