trying native MoH, I find this a really neat feature, but, is it possible to have a thread go off at asterisk start and start playing music instead of having each queue/musiconhold start the music from the start? for customers calling into the system regularly, it's quite annoying to listen to the same tunes over and over.

that sounds more a bounty for me.

as compared to the standard asterisk MoH, this should be quite a regular bug.

This is not a bug. If you wish to do that, use 'rawplayer' and play the audio streams yourself using an external process. You can also set 'random' mode on native MOH classes so that people will get different track order when they are placed on hold. The whole point of native file playback was to reduce memory/CPU consumption when it was not needed, so adding threads to sit there and spin through files wouldn't accomplish very much.
