FS#13286 - Unable to create bookmark after any playlist-altering action has been taken

Build of git commit 42dba70, tested on Eros Q

Bookmarks work normally if a file is played from the file browser by pressing select on a file.

If any playlist altering action is taken, the “Create Bookmark” item is no longer in the context menu, and the prompt to create a bookmark is no longer present upon stop if that feature is enabled.

To reproduce (this is probably not an exhaustive list):
1. in file browser, context-menu on a file and go to Current Playlist → Clear List & Play Next. Erase current dynamic playlist.
2. In WPS Context menu, the Bookmarks item is not present at all.

1. Play a file from a directory with multiple files. Erase current dynamic playlist.
2. In WPS Context menu, note Bookmarks item is present, and Create Bookmark is present within.
3. Go to current playlist from Context Menu. Remove or Move a track, it does not appear to matter whether it is before or after the current playing track.
4. In WPS Context menu, Bookmarks item is present, but Create Bookmark is not present within it.

I think this might be "by design"? At least that's how I interpret the manual:

"Note: Bookmarking only works when tracks are launched from the file browser, and does not work for tracks launched via the database. In addition, they do not work with dynamic playlists."

That seems kind of confusing (and seems like a pretty major pitfall to its usefulness, imo). If it stores the current spot within a track, then I would think it should allow me to save/resume my position from any track, regardless of the state of the playlist.

Ok, I think I can do a workaround to this - just need to save the playlist if I need to move files around in the order or add/delete them. Otherwise bookmarks work normally if all the files happen to get added in the right order.

I think this issue is essentially nullified by  FS#13287  being fixed.
