FS#7413 - Can only reshuffle, save, a playlist if playback is playing or paused. Rebuffering slows save down.

Suppose I want to load a playlist, reshuffle it, save it, and play it. Saving a playlist seems to take longer if rockbox is rebuffering (makes sense), so perhaps I'd like to stop playback to save the playlist. But it seems I can only reshuffle and save the current playlist if it's playing or paused (because I think the only way to do it is via the context menu from the wps). Am I right that the only way to do what I want is to load the playlist, pause it (rockbox rebuffers in the background), reshuffle, save (which will take a while while it rebuffers but will save faster when it's finished rebuffering), and then unpause?
Apologies if there's a way to reshuffle/resave a playlist without having to load it + pause it first (couldn't find one).
Oh, maybe, there could be a way to temporarily halt rebuffering if playback is paused and rockbox is trying to do some other disk-intensive operation. I think that would make most sense.

Reason for closing: Out of Date
Additional comments about closing: it was changed a while ago so you could save the most recent playlist if it is stopped... shuffling you cant do but thats not a big deal imo.
