Forgot to reply about the main point.
"Quit after playback" gives no information to the user, and could be 
understood(*) as "quit after the current item", while it is a playlist related 
option. It could not be labeled as is then.
You have a 'mixed context' menu, and that option can be seen related to the 
'quit' action. That's why i moved it as an optional condition to the quit 
action, while setting it to an expressful name.
Moving it to the preferences is also an alternative, but it seems you want it 
to be togglable anytime. That's not an easy problem then.

(*) As explained before, on that same menu, the play/stop/next/prev entries 
have meaning for both playlist and item: "play stop" applies to current item 
only and "next prev" toggles a playlist action. "Jump to specific time" being 
also related to current item.
