I would have thought that if the mode was on shuffle then the next track froma playlist would
be randomly chosen.

If it's not then perhaps it should be?

This isn't a bug but how the feature works -- directories/playlists are

inserted in order, irregardless of the shuffle setting. To shuffle

them, do exactly what you describe. I've considered adding an "Insert

Shuffled" option but I don't really want to bloat the already large list

of playlist options, especially since there is a simple workaround.
