Shared Links don't play songs in order -- MORE INFO

Hi folks,

I'm running MADSONIC 5.1.5260.20150831.0820 on Windows.

If I use the SHARE function to get a link to a playlist, and then go to that link, the songs that show up in the player are not all of the songs in the playlist, and they are out of order.

Is there a way to share the entire playlist in order, or am I doing something wrong?

Okay, some more information and examples:

There are a few minor issues with playlists that have all songs in the same directory. They *usually* play correctly. I found one playlist that plays 1 3 2 4 5 rather than 1 2 3 4 5, but if the songs are all in one directory it's usually okay.

However, if the playlist pulls songs from multiple directories on disk, then the first [up to 10] songs are usually out of order.

A 24 song playlist from various directories comes up in this order when shared via a link:

4,5,6,1,3,2 and then 7,8,9 and so on in the right order. This order is consistent whenever I use the same link.

If I generate another share link, it generates a new order: 5,6,7,8,1,3,4,2,9 and then 10,11,12 as it's supposed to be.

This is a consistent order, even if I restart the Madsonic server.

So, it has something to do with initial disk access.

Does this help ring any bells?
