The patch doesn't add that, that's an existing setting: start screen can
be set to Resume Playback. The patch doesn't handle this case specially.
So, on boot, it does the same as if the user selects Resume Playback
from the menus, including restarting a playlist that already finished. I
*want* it to pop up the "Nothing to resume" splash and just stay on the
main menu, and that's currently what it does..
