Subject: question about disc accesses

question about disc accesses

Hi list.
I was wondering if anyone knows why I might be seeing the following
behaviour.
I have noticed that some times if I am listening to a dynamic playlist of
around four hours give or take, when I get to the last track which would
usually be around ten minutes in length, shortly before the end of the track
literally a few minutes I get a disc spin up.
Then once the track ends the disc spins back up in order to load my next
folder.
I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts why I might be getting this odd
spin up shortly before the end of the last track.
It doesn't always happen, but it does happen fairly often.
I have the dircache option enabled, usually I get one disc spin up around
half way through a playlist, and then some times this odd spin up shortly
before its end.

Wasn't fs #9621 going to try to deal with disc accesses?
I did try having this patch applied on my build once, but unfortunately I
found that whenever I wound back in a file my disc got spun up so I
discarded that patch, but I guess maybe that's because it needs a bit of
working on.
