Shift+L - doesn't "Stop after song finished (would be nice if you could see that somewhere)", it 'suggests' to open some folder. Ctrl+V does the job ("stop after song " - exactly the way it mentioned above).

ok; done right now :-)

The pleasure is mine :), and thanks for the list, it's really helpful. Although there's a little mistake again (in the same key combination) - now it's 'Shift+V' while there should be 'Ctrl' instead of 'Shift'.
