As of 0.5.2, the "Remember playlist" no longer works correctly.
1. Start parole
2. Set "Remember playlist" in the settings
3. $ xfconf-query -c parole -p /playlist/remember-playlist
So far so good.
3. Restart parole
4. Go to settings: "Remeber Playlist" is unset.
$ xfconf-query -c parole -p /playlist/remember-playlist
As a result, it's no longer possible to empty a playlist. Upon restart, it's there again.
The strange thing is that I can monitor the changes to
xfconf-query -c parole -m
A signal gets emitted, however the state is not correct.
sorry it took a bit longer to reply, but we're having trouble to reproduce the issue. For both me and Sean this seems to work as expected, so tbh we're a bit clueless as to how to proceed with this...
Ok, I realized the problem already exists in 0.5.0 (and probably even earlier, haven't tested), so reproducing should be straight forward:
1. Set "Remember playlist" and quit.
2. Verify it'S set witj xfconf-query.
3. Start parole again and go to the settings. "Remember playlist" is unchecked, regardless of the actual state in xfconf. It's impossible to disable the option in the GUI once it's set.
As a result, parole will start up with a playlist every time, even if you cleared the playlist before closing parole.
Fully reproducable on Fedora. You can give the Fedora 19 Xfce Spin from

The fix for this bug has just been merged to git master and will be part of the next release.
