I'll try, but just from looking at the code inside im_playlist.c
it doesn't appear to check the pl->nexttrack variable inside the 'while(1)'
loop unless it reaches the eof on the playlist file. Honestly I don't
understand the ogg function calls, but just wondering if code has to be
added to check this.
