Amarok should clear the playlist sorting configuration when switching to a dynamic playlist. 

Otherwise new songs might be added _before_ the currently playing song. I tried it with an alphabetically sorted playlist and after it finished the last song (artist starting with "Z") Amarok stopped playing.

The playlist contained several songs that were not played.

I also noticed that one of the played songs appeared 9 times in the playlist.

Changing element, since it is about playlist sorting.
Comment 2 Ravi Arora 2011-04-16 07:42:11 UTC
I also think that this is a small but needed change. Why not keep this as an option in config dialog.

This is not a wish, but a bug.
