Hi, sorry for not being more active but I have some deadlines to meet.
These deadlines get priority because, well.. when met, they pay the
bills ;-)

As to adding repeat. You should look at the playlist looper thread
specifically the playlist_looper(void *) function in Playlist.cpp.
What this thread does is basically monitor the current playing song and
when it notices that the current song has stopped (reached its end)
fires up the Next song in the playlist. This function should be modified
to also check some kind of repeat variable that should indicate wether
the current song should be repeated or just do the next song.

It's a good thing to run "make distclean" on your source tree before
running diff.

I'll check your code.. no promises on when though :)
