Thanks for the patch!

But it happens that there is a pause where I cannot here music in the
first seconds when the buffer is filled up. The difference is now that
there's only a pause, that means the music comes back (after 0,5 s or
so). Or at least it comes back most of the times I try this.
Before, it was more frequently that it was quiet the whole time until
the next disk-spin-up (and the buffer was filled).

Any additional ideas? ;-)
