Song drag to playlist does not scroll playlist if on automatic playlist

Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

When you drag a song to a playlist, it adds it to that playlist. If the playlist that you're looking for is further down or up the list, dragging the song to the top or bottom automatically scrolls the list. But this doesn't happen if the song at the top or bottom is an automatic playlist. Since it won't let you add the song to it, I guess it doesn't register for the scroll to happen.

Ubuntu 8.04
Rhythmbox 0.11.5-0ubuntu8

Add some automatic playlists to your list. You may want to add some non-automatic ones above and below them. The idea is to have some automatic playlists at the bottom of the window, and not have it scrolled all the way to the bottom. Drag a song to the playlist pane. If you have a regular playlist at the bottom, it will scroll down. If you have an automatic playlist at the bottom, it won't.
This may have changed with the new Rhythmbox in Intrepid, I'll have to check on that.

This still happens to me in Intrepid. Since you can't add a song to an automatic playlist by dragging it, the left side will not scroll down when you drag a song over if an automatic playlist is the last one you can see.

could you please tell us some easy steps in order to reproduce it? what you said worked fine here, thanks you.

The problem is basically that unless the view has a simple playlist at the top or bottom (Music and Play Queue count too, since you can also drag to those), it will not scroll the sidebar for you. I'll see if I can get some kind of video of it.

Ok, gtk-recordMyDesktop wouldn't drag and drop while it was recording, so I used Istanbul to record this.
