Hey Jus,

I think part of this stems from some of your skin.xml files not making two connections to cue_default per Cue button. There should be two, one with EmitOnDownPress true and one with it false. It's one of those dumb parts of the skin system, but the cue button does not work correctly without it.

In CDJ Mode, while not playing, pressing cue will set a cue point. Pressing it once more will preview from that point, and upon release of the button, the player will stop and snap back to the cue point.

I believe I fixed a related problem in lp:mixxx/1.8 where if you were to preview with the cue button and then hit a hotcue, the previewing would become broken. The behavior in this case isn't well defined, but I think I cleaned it up a little bit so that the Cue controller cannot get stuck in a bad state.
