This means that if I start playing a track further down the queue, and it hasn't gone thru it's other sequential numbers, it will jump back to the first in it's list [1], and won't play the next track in my queue. Geez, if I wanted to have random songs playing then I'd turn on the Shuffle button! I've searched thru the Playlist options in Preferences and there doesn't seem to be any option to turn this off - does anyone know how?
Yes, the enqueue only option for the Playlist Editor was broken (it now acts just like enqueue & play). I expect DrO will fix it after the AOL shutdown is resolved. Your work-a-round to use the queue is a partial solution.

There are some options for controlling how the queue works (such as text formatting in the Playlist Editor) in the General Preferences; Jump To File - Queue Options tab and Jump To File - Display tab.

There may be more, but those are all I've been able to find.

You can even chose to load your entire playlist into the queue when Winamp starts (see Jump To File - Queue List tab) and do all playback from the Queue Manager instead of the Playlist Editor.
