I used to be able to type something into the iTunes search bar to filter the songs. You could click on a song, clear the search, and focus would stay on that song/album's position. I've since added a good amount of music to iTunes, and now when I clear the search box it moves to the top of the list every time.
This is really annoying. I'm pretty sure it has to do with surpassing a certain number of songs (I'm at 10,145) because it still works in smaller sized playlists (e.g. one with 3,000 songs).
I even tried regenerating my iTunes library from scratch (removing the Music/iTunes folder, relaunching, and re-importing everything) and the same behavior occurs.
Does anyone know how to get this functionality back? Is there a setting somewhere I can set? Or is this just a bug with iTunes (or maybe Cocoa?)
