My Question or Issue

Steps to reproduce:

1. Start playback of any song in any playlist

2. Remove this currently playing song from that playlist

3. Open "Next From" section and reorder songs there

Expected result:

User's order is applied, just like when it is when no songs were removed

Actual result:

The queue gets somewhat randomized each time the order is changed, yet it doesn't look like a shuffle, but rather like it has some logic to it, but it's flawed. I guess the length of some array is not updated after the song is removed?

 

On the attached video I first show the case then queue reordering works correctly - when just playing a song without removing anything, then I go through the steps described above.

This issue has been there for a really long time, half a year for sure, so it's not a recent regression.

 

P.S. I have just tested this on web player and it's the same, so I suppose the issue is on the backend.
