playlist handling

I'm currently working on better playlist support for the BeOS interface 
plug-in. I noticed that some vlc playlist functions have a strange 
behaviour. BTW, I'm talking about 0.4.3. When a stream is currently 
playing, using the JumpTo() function is only modifing the playlist 
itself, it dosn't take care of the actual change in what is being 
played. However, if no stream is playing, it triggers playback. I would 
consider this inconsistent. What's worse, when no stream is playing, 
you have to jump to index_you_want-1. Is there a logic behind this? Am 
I caught up in a BeOS interface specific bug? Has any of this changed 
in the current tree? Is there currently some documentation on the 
playlist stuff in vlc?

Thanks for any and all feedback & regards,
