Bug Description

To reproduce rip a cd with asunder and save an m3u playlist file then open that playlist in gnome-mplayer. Then when you do not have gnome-mplayer open and it switches to a new song two notifications will appear when the window is not focused. This also happens with selecting multiple audio files with Gnome-mplayer in the open dialog with control click and then having it change to the next song with the window unfocused. This bug is probably less likely to be encountered with video files as the user will want to see picture in the window.
