It's still happening.

I suspect it happens if you're within one buffer-length of the end of
the playlist. Instead of reading in all remaining tracks, it reads in
just the track curently playing... I can make it happen reproducibly if
the buffer empties when only two tracks are left in the playlist (the
one currently being played and thus partially buffered, and one more).
