n78 FM transmitter - not usable with streaming audio?

I was kind of hoping, when I chose an n78, that I'd be able to conveniently play the streaming radio stations from Nokia's internet radio player thru bigger speakers via the built-in FM transmitter. In fact it's silent save for a regular beeping noise. No doubt it would work for the MP3 player part of the n78. has anyone found a hack to make streaming audio work thru the phone's FM sender?

That worked with the factory firmware. When I updated over-the-air, I discovered that only music from Music Player was being transmitted.

Not to mention that Nokia also introduced a nasty bug with that firmware - after activating the FM transmitter, you can no longer activate the loudspeaker while on the phone. A power cycle fixes it, but you shouldn't have to reboot your phone after using the FM transmitter.

Thanks for that nugget of info, so it looks like my N78 is already 'upgraded' to the broken level of firmware!
