Details

Previously skipping a track in repeat-1 mode would start playback again of the same track.
As dongs pointed out on IRC (repeatedly) from his detailed studies of many people this is unintuitive.

So here the fix is.
This task depends upon

Additional comments about closing:  Patch completely useless, perhaps this could be opened as a feature request if anyone feels it's necessary. No point leaving the task open.

I honestly don't believe that disabling the Repeat-1 function is the way to solve this.

Oh boy am I red faced. I guess I should have tested this a bit more before testing it hey :)

Hehe. :-)

As you can see, the problem is that the repeat-1 is handled at the playlist level by building a playlist with only 1 track and letting it repeat. This is why it isn't easy to fix this issue.

A possible solution would be to handle the repeat-1 in the playback code instead, so it only calls playlist_next() when actually skipping a track.
