How was the original playlist created? The only reason other tracks
from a directory would be added is if you started a new dynamic playlist
in that directory when it only contained one track, shutdown and added
new tracks to that directory and then resumed play. When you PLAY in a
directory, we only keep a pointer to the directory for resume, not all
the individual tracks (see bug: http://tinyurl.com/38v7t).
