Sorry to have rattled the cage!
I don't think it's a key-binding issue as I can replicate with the menus.
To clarify my experience in both Tree & Gallery views (0.26/fixes);
- selecting an album/playlist/All Track/ etc: "Replace All" loads the
current playlist and starts playing first track. Pause/Play works fine -
perfectly intuitive IMO.
- selecting a track: track checkbox is ticked, track goes into (empty)
current playlist but doesn't play. Selecting Play via menu does nothing.
Selecting Next Track via menu starts playing the track. Thereafter
Pause/Play works fine.
- or, select several tracks (checkboxes ticked/ they go into empty
playlist), switch to Current Playlist view - there are no track status
icons (playing, paused, stopped) anywhere in the list. Up/Down/Left/Right
works normally switching widgets between inactive/selected inactive but
Menu/Play does nothing. Upon selecting the track (OK, Enter) a track goes
'selected active' and starts playing. Thereafter Pause/Play work fine.
Stop playing, switch view to editor and back again. The widgets appear the
same but a 'Stopped' track status is shown this time on one track. Play
works normally now.
This all concurs with the first paragraph of 10710.
My gut feeling was that putting a single track into an empty playlist
doesn't initialise the playlist properly so any attempt to Play fails.
However I play albums almost exclusively so I've never bothered to look at
the code, follow previous discussions or even analyse its behaviour in
detail until now.
FWIW I think you did a grand job on the rework. Many thanks from me.
My main irritation is the cluttered menus but I know that's a (reasonable)
Interesting to see your private repo. I haven't had time to look through
it. Is there an overview/summary of it's purpose and how it deviates from
the official ? I've sometimes wondered why there are no off-shoot
areas/repos for those who wish to extend/customise beyond the official
