I've made a few changes to fix some of these. Could you try the latest
revision and tell me how badly I've done?

Strange. This works fine for me.
Could you try running rhythmbox --debug and send me the output off-list?
If you could move your existing rhythmdb file out of the way and create
a new one with just a few songs, that'd be great, but if not, don't worry

Yes, this is just happening because the queue isn't emptying itself.

I couldn't think of a good way to do this. The previous entry is
(supposed to be) removed from the queue, so either the entry would have
to be re-added to the queue, or .. something. Any ideas? I suppose at
the very least, you should be able to use "previous" to go back to the
start of the playing song.

I've made a few changes in the vague hope of getting this right. It's
closer, but not entirely there.

Again, the last song in the queue should have been removed, so this
shouldn't be happening.

I don't think there's much use for the queue display in radio mode.
I just hadn't thought of a good way of making it disappear.
I still haven't, but I've implemented it anyway.

I don't know why I did that. Always showing the queue size seems
reasonable to me.
