[vlc-devel] [PATCH] Reshuffle after playthrough

i spent some time testing the changes and it seems like my assumption was
wrong. the player does not always start with element 0 when a loop is

when you hit the next button on the player the action is handled via the
request mechanism - because of this shuffling the playlist won't assure all
titles are played before the next shuffle occurs because it does not start
with element 0.

i created a "better" patch which fixes the shuffle issue if you let vlc
play without hitting the next button. it will play all elements in the
playlist once, than shuffle the list and play ever element once again in a
different order before shuffling the list again ....

hitting the next button will result in the same behavior we currently have.

i attach the diff to this message, please have a look and tell me whether i
should create another thread on the mailing list?
