Please try pushing more to get the issues with slave mode fixed.
I have limited time and it will take some time before I will fix
something I don't even use but usually I will do it when people keep
E.g. I fixed setting properties in idle mode just a short time ago
(admittedly, that was quite trivial to do, so other things might take
longer to do, and some things might not get fixed any time soon
regardless of how many people complain ;-) ).
I also seem to remember a patch that adds message for start/end of
playback that probably would be useful, but nobody pushed that long
enough either.
