Yesterday 20:46 02d20eb: Fix big WTF when closing the current track.

It must be set to something else valid (unless it's the only one left) when closing it, IN ALL CASES, not just if it's first or last. Don't know what was in my head. Hopefully takes care of a reported issue. Even if it's not causing any issues, it was still incorrect.

Tuesday 14:57 838ff9c: Add a 32 byte read buffer to read_line.

Do as with fdprintf and avoid filesystem calls for every single byte. If it overreads, just put the excess back with lseek, which does no I/O itself.

9th Dec 08:41 cd3ea08: Buffering: Remove statically-sized path buffer from handle struct

Paths are stored after the structure at their actual length plus any aligment padding. In principle, any type of auxilliary data could go there.
