I upraded from 1.3.36 to 1.3.40 last weekend and noticed this new
behaviour last night. I like it a lot! Much faster than having to press
OK after seeing the timer settings (which are generally how I want them
anyway!). It just feels slicker now.

Ditto: that would be really annoying but then I generally use a 'proper'
Stop button rather than the blue button to stop playback. I'd have
thought stopping playback by accident is only a minor annoyance,
compared with shutting down by accident, for example, which does have a
confirmation message.
