I this playlist group and album names used like titles. Winamp simply skips this "files".
Audacious since 3.9 removes all unexistent files when adding such playlist.
And also audacious shows error message with unreadable file name with tons of '%' for every unexistent file.

Winamp behavior more convenient:
- Audacious should simply skip not existent files (not remove its from playlist) (since version 3.9)
- No errors should be displayed (all audacious versions)

Or at least option to enable this behavior may be added

Since 3.10 audacious does not remove from playlist not existent files, as winamp and earlier audacious versions
But annoying messages with '%' are still shown. And no way to disable it
