I'm not sure, sorry. Me and Jonathan discussed this option when working
out how to handle auto-updating and decided against it. The best option
I think would just be to increase the frequency at which we update the
profile. I'm not sure by how much though.

I don't think this was caused by the backport. I've experienced it too
but I've not been able to reproduce it sadly. My hunch is that it's
caused by the "trackauth" parameter of the old radio api. I wouldn't
want to ask about it since we're being fairly cheeky using the
old api. If my suspicion is correct though it will probably be fixed
when I finish porting to the new scrobbling api.

But I might be completely wrong.

There'd be quite a few problems with doing this. The fact that
also provides love/ban functionality being the main one. also I feel
it's better to keep related interactions to the page: if
every source persistently placed their toolbuttons in the toolbar it'd
quickly become a mess.
