    The /proc/kmsg problem happens because the kernel now checks for
    permission at read() instead of open(). The /dev/rtc problem seems to
    be a different beast.

    To simplify, what about these two:
    mplayer foo.mpg
    mplayer foo.mpg < mediafiles.txt

    You might try strace'ing both cases and see how they compare.
