I don't think we should start playing when the user presses "queue".. i
mean, queue != play. What is already done however, that if the playlist
is stopped (as in, the last song has ended, or is empty), the earliest
added song will be loaded, but it will be paused.
In CVS I've changed the behaviour so that pressing "Play" wont close the
window anymore. I guess we'll just have to get used to hitting "Escape"
a bit more ..
