I'd also say it should go to WPS in that situation. "Repeat" refers to
the continuous operation IMO. If the player is powered off, it's no
"repeat" anymore. If the start screen is set to WPS that means (for me
at least) that the user would like to (automatically) hear music after
power on. This patch would enable that in 99.9% of cases (0.1% being the
case of the first installation of Rockbox -- there is no playlist then :-).
