My Auto Playlist has stopped Now Playing from working

    Well, sort of. I have made an auto playlist to show all unrated and unplayed
    tracks as a quick way of getting through new material. I put a sort on Album
    Artist in the playlist. Everything works fine except...

    When it's playing, and I click on the Now Playing tab, it shows me the track
    now playing. But when I click back on the Library tab, it just shows the
    playlist from the top. It doesn't show the track Now Playing in the centre of
    the Libarary pane.

    The track that is Now Playing is highlighted in blue, but I have to scroll
    up and down to find it. Since the purpose of my autolist is to help me rate
    tracks quickly, this has become very annoying.

    When I use WMP on other playlists, or select other blocks of tracks, going
    from Now Playing pane to the Library pane puts the Now Playing track right in
    the centre of the Libray pane. This is what I want to achieve with my auto

    It makes no difference if I take the Sort off. It just won't show the the
    Now Playing track in the Library.

    I have WMP, running on Windows XP Home SP2.

    Any suggestions are welcome.
