  Play queue extension doesn't fill by album properly

Status in Banshee:
Status in banshee package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When the play queue extension is set to randomly fill "by album", it
  only adds one album's worth of tracks regardless of how much space is
  free in the play queue. In addition the "add more" button hardly ever
  appears to do anything and when it does, it merely adds a single
  albums worth of tracks again.

  As a result the player quickly reaches the end of the play queue and
  starts playing tracks randomly from the library.

  Expected behaviour, as seen in 12.04, would be for the play queue to
  fill to its limit with tracks by album, e.g. when the limit is 100
  tracks it should fill to that amount, not just a single album's worth
  of tracks. This is a definite regression between the versio packaged
  in 12.04 and the one in 14.04.

  I have not yet been able to build an upstream version of Banshee as:

  ⟫ sudo apt-get build-dep banshee
  Reading package lists... Done
  Building dependency tree       
  Reading state information... Done
  E: Failed to satisfy Build-Depends dependency for banshee: Installed package libgpod-cil-dev is too new

  but I suspect it has the same issue as I could not find any similar
  issue reported in upstream's bugzilla.

  I have attempted to report this bug in upstream's bugzilla, but it
  requires me to create an account and doesn't seem to want to email me
  the verification link for that.
