    This why I create the custome string. I just have it
    display "Shuffled". No problem though with using the
    PLAYING string. My whole point was to modify the
    string so as not to take up so much space. It was
    nice to be able to look at it and quickly see that I'm
    in shuffle mode but it's not imperative.

    its seems this change was made about 6 months ago. From teh comment, it seems
    this was also due to much complaining about the whole shuffled string.

    Maybe a better way to go on this one would be to bring the string back, but have
    the default localisations set the same as NOW_PLAYING. This way, users can
    still create their own string files that will show different strings for
    shuffled and unshuffled.
