Me too!

I can't imagine some one uses repeat of + start screen for safety on
bootup, instead just not having the start screen being the wps.

Not what I call solved.

For what's it worth, I agree fully with fml and pondlife. The current
behavior doesn't make sense for me. The behavior of the patch without the
bootup part even less.

I'd actually consider using repeat off if we had this change. I don't as
of now.

Can anyone tell me a media player which refuses to restart the playlist of
it played out and repeat was off?

Best regards.
