    My Party shuffle doesn't shuffle anymore since I upgraded to Tiger. When I click on the Party Shuffle, it just shows my iTunes library in the exact same order as it is in the library. I've tried turning it off and on in the preferences, I've tried every selection at the bottom of the party shuffle window and I've tried refreshing the list. When I click refresh it does nothing. It's very strange, it's not a big deal, I don't use it that much, but I am just curious as to why it is doing this. Any ideas?

    I'm not sure why it's doing it either but i have a fix.

    For some reason once party shuffle gets it's knickers in a twist then it can't recover from it. I've only found one partial way of causing the problem and that is to go back and play songs that have been previously played. Party shuffle doesn't seem to reduce the amount of upcoming tracks appropriately, but that doesn't account for the list filling with contents of the library.

    The fix i've got is to change the source, number of previously played tracks displayed, and number of upcoming songs to your desire, and then double click on the last track in the list. Party Shuffle should then show the desired number of previously played tracks and also display the correct number of upcoming songs from the correct source.

    Hope this helps (and works with your system)
