Intelligent browsing: inconsistent behavior?
I have noticed a behavior that seems inconsistent (or, at least, unexpected) to me when browsing a music collection. The behavior is probably best explained with an example and a few screenshots. Let's say, I am browsing the works of B. Britten

and select the string quartet No. 2. There is only one album in my collection that contains this work and the next screen is

Notice that I am presented with three single tracks and that there is no direct way of playing them without opening a further dialogue. Contrast this situation to the following

Here, I am browsing through F. Schubert's works. Selecting the string quartet No. 14 yields

because there are two albums in my music collection that contain this work. Selecting "2 albums" in the above screen indeed yields

Selecting the second album yields the following screen

Notice that now I can now directly play the four tracks by tapping the cursor arrow in the middle of the screen. Why cannot I do so for Britten's string quartet No. 2?

It seems that MinimServer treats the leaves of a browsing tree in a branch-dependent fashion. This seems inconsistent to me and is the motivation for this post. Specifically, I would like to see the album artwork and the "play now" cursor control also in the case of Britten's string quartet.
