parole -a <directory> does not behave the same as parole <directory>


Description Simon Marchi 2016-10-12 03:50:59 CEST
Hi all,

When there is already an instance of parole running, and I do 

 $ parole Videos/

the whole content of the Videos directory is added to the playlist, and parole starts playing the first item of the directory, as expected.  When using

 $ parole -a Videos/

a "Videos" item appears in the playlist.  If I try to play it, parole simply complains that the item is a directory and can't be played.

It seems to me that the behavior with respect to directories could be consistent in both cases, which means always enqueue the directory content.
