When using Dynamic Playlists, when previous tracks are automatically removed from the playlist the currently selected track[s] changes. This is particularly obvious when double clicking to play a specific track.
- Enable dynamic playlist.
- Set the number of "previous" allowed in the dynamic playlist to 5 (This is arbitrary but useful to illustrate this example).
- Play (or skip) through the playlist until you are playing track 5.
- Double click track 6.
- Track 4 (previously 5) is now selected.
- Track selection is persistent when automatically removing tracks, although the position of the tracks within the list will change.
- Similar effects occur when the end of the currently playing track is reached. This does not just occur when double clicking.
- The position jumped to behind the newly playing track is equal to the number of tracks removed from the start of the playlist.

Thanks John, I've merged the patch into mainline. Seems to work nicely here :)
(further testing from others welcome)
FYI: I just committed 21935f35a604ae1883633d11e9001c1df70ccb87
Playlist view cleanup: remove workaround for BUG 208349 (retaining selection during playlist item remove).
- Don't call 'reset()' on signal 'layoutChanged' from the source model.
I can not see any reason to do that, and the current maintainers don't remember a
- Remove '(save|restore)TrackSelection()'.
These were added for BUG 208349, but it's something that QListView should be handling
automatically. I don't see any point to them now that there are fewer junk signals
flying through the ModelStack.
I checked that I could reproduce the problem in v2.2.0, and also that I can not
reproduce it in this commit where I've removed the workaround.
This removes your workaround, because I believe it is no longer needed.
In case I am wrong and the problem reappears for you, please re-open this bug report.
