Version:  (using 4.4.3 (KDE 4.4.3), Debian packages)
Compiler:          cc
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.33-3.slh.7-sidux-686

When I put some tracks into the playing queue and then temporarily filter my playlist to search for a specific song or artist the whole queue is lost after I switch back to full playlist view.
Comment 1 Sven Krohlas 2010-05-13 10:18:01 UTC
Holy shit, I can verify this. :/

The "show only matches" option has to be enabled.

regression? Did it work before?
Comment 2 James Dent 2010-06-01 08:04:45 UTC
I have just run into this problem upon upgrading from 2.3.0 to 2.3.1.
Comment 3 Balazs Fodor 2010-07-22 19:37:29 UTC
Bumped into this bug too in version 2.3.1!
Comment 4 Micah 2010-08-14 23:25:28 UTC
I also verified this, its pretty annoying =P
Comment 5 Janet 2010-08-16 01:40:56 UTC
Even more strange: the queue doesn't get lost completely. The songs are not marked anymore with that green circle, the playing order is as if there is nothing in the queue - but when you rightclick on a track that previously was in the queue the context menu stil offers to *remove* the track from queue and you have to first remove the track before you can re-add it...

me too!

Looks like a duplicate to me.

oops. I didn't mean to mark THIS as a dupe of THAT, but the other way around. sorry!

Comment 10 Janet 2010-08-30 03:47:12 UTC
Is it really a duplicate? IMHO not. IMHO Bug 223877 is about playing the queue *while* the playlist is filtered, this one is about a loss of the queue *after* the playlist was filtered temporarily for searching for songs to add to the queue. It is keeping the queue and getting it back when the filter is off again. And about a very inconsistent behaviour #5 with a lost queue for playing but songs still pretend to be in it.
Comment 11 Myriam Schweingruber 2010-08-30 10:09:35 UTC
Indded, this is not a duplicate.
Comment 12 Kai Uwe Broulik 2010-09-09 00:53:43 UTC
I just found that queue feature and it‘d be soo nice if it didn‘t lose filtered songs.
Comment 13 Kai Uwe Broulik 2010-09-09 01:00:57 UTC
Addition: it just loses songs that are not displayed because of the filter. If I add “example” to queue and filter the playlist for “exa” it is still in queue, if I accidently type “exs” the selection is gone, although it offers you to remove it from queue. But neither that green bulb is displayed nor is the song played next. It just picks the next song from playlist.
Comment 14 Shane O'Donnell 2010-09-21 22:01:44 UTC
I can confirm the bug still exists in

Comment 16 Matt 2010-12-16 22:47:40 UTC
Amarok 2.4beta1 still has this bug.  When using the playlist to search for items to add to the queue, it clears the previous queue.  However, items that were marked as queued are no longer marked, so it appears that half of the bug is fixed.

    Don't dequeue tracks hidden from view while searching.
    There was code doing this entirely on purpose. Removing it might break
    some scenario where tracks are actually supposed to be dequeued,
    altghough I can't think of one.

Comment 18 Kai Uwe Broulik 2011-03-23 17:30:04 UTC
Yep, in 2.4.1 Beta 1 again shows this behavior, tracks queued are lost after you filtered the view. This is just soo annoying again, so I will revert to 2.4. At least 2.4.1 doesn‘t crash every 2 minutes.

Reopening based on comment #18
Comment 20 Kai Uwe Broulik 2011-03-25 16:00:01 UTC
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that now (or in 2.4 already?) the playlist filter does not match 1:1 now but if you enter “example song” it will find „The Example” by „The Song Makers” for example.

Git commit 81fd6990a4684202571baebc92415ccfbda62651 by Andreas Hartmetz.
Committed on 25/03/2011 at 22:03.
Pushed by ahartmetz into branch 'master'.

Don't dequeue tracks hidden from view while searching, second try.

This time while keeping bug 263308 closed.
We remove a track from the queue when it is removed from the *bottom*
model in the model stack, i.e. permanently.

Tried the latest git and it is working now.
