One additional point that I just thought of:

When they switch back out of minimised mode, we can set the selected
source to be the one that is playing (which makes sense anyway) - that
query is still going to be in memory. As long as we regenerate the
queries before the user changes to viewing a different source, it
shouldn't be noticeable.
