Pianobar hangs in silence after playing an ad #346

Today I started hearing ads in pianobar. No big deal, but my client would hang in silence for a couple of minutes afterwards. The ad claimed it was a song. During the hang, pianobar showed -00:00/00:30 as the time for the faux-song.


I haven't been hearing ads, but recently I have noticed that if I skip songs too many times they will begin to play in silence; each counting down from 00:42. I found that if I delete the 'state' file and restart pianobar, things will work normally again until I try to skip a song.


It was bizzarre. One day there were ads and these pauses, and then the next day everything back to normal.


See #301for the skipping issue.

Looks like the ads were just a test then.
