Yep, that's how it works, if memory serves (I messed with this in July so 
am having trouble remembering).  A different signal, I think USR1, will 
make it skip to the next track.

It does, but when I tried doing this, it recognised the changed playlist 
but picked up at the same place it had been in the old one, rather than 
going from the top.  So, in my case, after it had played item 5 in the old 
playlist, it began with item 6 of the new one.  Not quite what I'd wanted, 
but it was good enough at the time.  Oh and this was Ices 0.3 then.
