I have tested that extensively...by ripping back my own stream
continiously for many months...so i have a whole folder full with mp3´s that were played
the ripper adds a timestamp also....all the mp3´s that are in "random" playlists
dont appear in that folder...and i did not hear them being played.

Cant tell you if that is a bug in Shoutcast or Centova
i bet they (one or the other) know about it...but never mention it
Most stations are not serious and dont check it like i do...so they dont complain.

I don't use Centova. I use TekBase. I cannot confirm that my playlists will be played random. Only some playlists (not more than 3 in a row) with very short content (less than about 5 minutes down to some seconds and with only one mp3 file) will be played after a restart!
