Rating a song in queue skips to next track

(occurs in r902)
Sometimes when I rate a track while it's in the play queue, the track is rated correctly* and Play skips ahead to the next track. I'm having trouble reliably duplicating the behavior, though; it only seems to happen when I least expect it.

I haven't seen this happen in the library yet, but then the majority of my rating has been happening in the queue (despite the occasional frustration :) ).

* Also, I reckon this is as bad a place as any to bring up a minor UI annoyance. Why, when I click in the center of star 4, is the value set to 3? Is this a placeholder for partial ratings, or simply capricious UI design intended to drive people like me just that tiny bit crazier?

This would be strange behavior indeed. Does it seem to matter at what point in the song you change the rating?

Hard to say. I tend to rate toward the last third of the song. Naturally, that's where it seems to crop up most often. It's happened when I rate within the first 20 seconds of a regular length song, so there's no hard limit. It's happened with both ogg and mp3 so far, morning, noon and night. I'll see if I can come up with something more concrete. It'd probably a good idea to run a debug build.

Huh. I did a dev build and didn't run into the problem. Now I'm running a release build, and still no problems. Guess it was gremlin-related. I can't see that I'm doing anything different now, other than enjoying Play slightly more.
