Does this really depend on the playlist refreshing behavior?
If the file being played is gone, there's just no way to resume it.
If other files have been added/removed, I think the playlist should
refresh itself, but resuming should be made clever enough to pick the
right file to resume nevertheless. There must be a way to do that.

Just my two cents.
