Song position marker issue(s)
Ubuntu 17.04 x86_64
Two issues when dealing with the song position marker using the mouse:
1. Start playing a song (wav, mp3) of at least a decent length. Grab the song position marker and drag it beyond the end-position and release the mouse-button. The marker stays at the end, the song display shows the end-time (and continues to play over its actual length-time) but the program plays the sound at the position it was previously playing, plus ~1 second.
- The expected behaviour is that if you're at the end of the song (which the song position marker implies), to start playing the next song in the list (of course this can be debated if that is what should happen, but it seems pretty common behaviour in music players, for example Spotify does this). If not, then at least the song position marker and the song display should feedback where it is actually playing, after doing this manoeuvrer.
2. The other issue is that you are able to get stuck into the grab-state of the song position marker, so that you can not interact with the rest of the music player until you either quit and restart the program, or wait until the song ends. The step to reproduce this is to double-click somewhere in the song position marker-area and that makes the song position marker sticking to the horizontal movement of the mouse.
- This does not seem to be the case in the QT-version so using that might be my own workaround for now. :)

Hi Thomas. I am using an additional repository:

Aha, that could maybe be it for issue 1. Maybe it's the metadata in the wav-file that causes this (it was created with Renoise from the beginning, which adds metadata where one pattern ends and another pattern begins). I silenced the wav-file I tried with previously (so that it compresses into almost nothing, so it can be attached here). Both issues still happen to me using this wav-file.

I was able to reproduce the first issue with the file you attached (thanks!) and fix it.
Since the double-click issue appears to be specific to Ubuntu, please report it against the "audacious" package in Ubuntu, and their team can determine the root cause.
