Player stops playing queue after auto removal of played song

Just updated to the latest version 2.041and noticed that when I have selected the feature of auto decrementing the playlist for removal of items that have played that the player randomly stops after one or two plays. If I deselect the option all is well.

Secondarily I have noticed issues with klugey performance in list management and selection. The player seems to lock up for 30-40 seconds. I assume that it have to do with the size of the library (approximately 9900 items.

I am running a RPI 3 with an UDOO based Openmediavault NAS (with an SSD drive) and they are both on the same router.

If this is a known item hopefully a fix is available.
Thanks for all the great work with the product.
