Bug: Dragging files from Finder into Q. deletes current Q.

Drag a file in the Finder directly above the Queue.

You see that neat green (+) icon next to the mouse.
So that means it will add that file to the current Queue, right?

Nope. When you drop the file, it deletes the current Queue.

("Q." -> "Queue", darn topic character limit >:O )

This is actually by design. I see your point about the green + being misleading, though. The best solution would be to have a modifier key which when held down would cause the drag to replace the current queue, with addition occurring otherwise.

Yeah, I think that would work.

'Cause right now,
dragging from the Library to the Queue has the "add" result,
and dragging from the Finder to the Queue has the "replace" result.
A bit inconsistent.

Having a single consistent behavior would be great.
(And I suppose "hold a modifier key to replace" would apply to both dragging from the Finder and dragging from the Library.)

r695 remedies this, but there is no support (yet) for modifier keys that indicate "replace the current queue".
