Subject: A possible bug found in the queue code
From: Jack Peel (
Date: 2003-05-27

I stumbled across what seems to be a bug in the queue code. This is
what happened.
I was playing from a play list, and I wanted to insert a song in the
queue. This
has worked well many times before, but this time when I acutally queue'd
the song
it was in transistion from one song to the next. What happended was it
playing, however the play symbol stayed on. I waited for the player to
but it seemed to just sit there, so I selected the song that I wanted to
queue again
(this time to play) and it started up fine.

I'm wondering if there is a mutex issue where the enqueue thread was
writing the
file when the play thread was trying to read it and got confused, or
just gave up.

Just a simple bug report :)

If you have any questions, or want to get more details, just email me :)
you know how to email.. just put you lips together and push send :)
