Subject: RE: A possible bug found in the queue code
From: Hardeep Sidhu (
Date: 2003-05-28

Hi Jack,

Did you have any other songs queued before you queued this one?

There are a few possibilities as to the cause of this which I'll
investigate. However, you may want to file a bug report on SF just so it
doesn't get forgotten.
