ok, play any playlist:
gmplayer -playlist a.pls - and its works fine
gmplayer, load a playlist and it also works fine ...
gmplayer a.pls and it will continue to play a.pls ever and ever again ....
Because in the GUI-Idle loop mplayer uses mconfig to get the commandline and
creates a new playtree ...
So Albeu, or whoever wrote that part forgot, that there could be dynamically
expanding playlists ... (esp. fallback playlist :-( )
As long as there is only one file, or it is in the mconfig, it does work fine,
but as soon as there are more than one, mlayer sees, ah there is another
file, recreates the playtree and plays the same file ever and ever again,
this seems to be the same bug, that Gabucino found today with -menu ...
The playtree-code is nice, but it has one big drawback, it does too many
things that are not encapsulated in functions and are in main mplayer.c ...
(should be changed after 0.90)
The GUI-Idle code should only be entered, if there is nothing to play anymore,
such playtree=empty and such filename==NULL...
I tried it, and it did work ...

It will not break it ... but ok, it IS bad fix ...
It seems to have some other problems :-(( (gmplayer test/* seems to get into
endless loops too)
I'll test more ...
