Hmm.  I'll have a think about this one.  I'm not sure I like the idea of
having the expanders jump around like that, though.

There are three actions I can think of:
- move the selected entry to the start of the queue and play it,
  removing any currently playing entry from the start of the queue

- skip entries in queue until the selected entry is the first
  (I'd only consider this if the queue also kept the last n entries,
   so this would be reversible)

- play the selected entry out of order, and go back to the first entry
   when it's finished (or when the user hits 'next', etc.)

I'm leaning towards the first at the moment, but it still seems a bit
weird.  Current behaviour is obviously broken, so I'll have to do
