Thanks for your report. The first one is by design, and the second one has been addressed in the latest build (129).
Great Software my favorite of all the majors that i have tried.
couple of bugs for yeah....
when launching a video if i go back to the music screen to play a song instead it loads the video playlist and not the music play list. have to search by artist or title before it will reload my music playlist.
also if playing a song and you use the menu item to goto the desktop it closes freeway but mplayer keeps play the song. you have to kill the mplayer process in windows system tab. you also have to kill freeway via system menu as the interface is gone but the program is still running. if you simply relaunch freeway and play another song you will have both songs playing at the same time.
error was with build 219
