I have some similar problems... Was meaning to get around to reporting them.

All of my music is WMA, and I've run Moodlogic against it, although now I've
turned MoodLogic off in SlimServer (which is v. 5.2.1).

In many cases the first track gets labeled as track 0, then it's placed at
the *bottom* of the play list. The rest of the tracks are labelled 1..n and
ordered normally. I don't think this is due to the "genre" thing.

Occasionally I also do get the completely randomized list as well, although
this seems to be for soundtracks. For the record, I too would really like
to see this fixed, please.

Thanks in advance,

No, the album has the same genre - classic. There is no difference
track-by-track except for the track title. That's why this is strange!

the server indexes the songs by genre first, so if you have your album
with different genre's, the tracks may be added in an unexpected order.
