Aahh.. OK. Thanks for the explanation. I think that makes sense. I really 
don't want to resort to re-encoding, as I want this to be as high-quality as 
possible (bandwidth is not the problem here). So I guess I just have to split 
my playlist for now, until I got the chance to move everything to OGG.

Thanks for all the replies.
