"Play selection" plays ALL tracks

Hi there,

I installed Winamp 5.5 and noticed a strange behavior:
Opening my media library, selecting ONE song, right-clicking on it and selecting "Play selection" plays this song, but puts ALL available songs into the queue.
So by double-clicking on one song, all 6,589 songs get queued...
The expected behavior which I know from other programs is, that clicking "Play selection" plays the selected song and only this song gets added to the queue.

Am I using Winamp the incorrect way or is this the way it is supposed to be?

Thanks for any help/hints,

Go to:

Winamp -> Prefs (Ctrl+P) -> Media Library -> Library Options tab

and uncheck "Play search results (start with selected) on double click in media views"

Double-click is the same action as Enter, so yeah, I guess it is expected behaviour.
