I cannot reproduce your problem using ALSA on Linux/Gentoo.
I do get a console message when I change file while one is still playing (also with "next song" button).

2015-02-28 16:11:07.293 Cynthiune[5851] Failed writing to the ALSA device:
Broken pipe, trying to recover.
ALSA lib /var/tmp/portage/media-libs/alsa-lib-1.0.28/work/alsa-lib-1.0.28/src/pcm/pcm.c:7843:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred

However the song plays fine.

If I apply your patch, I get the same message though, so for now I do not commit your patch.

If you start playing a song and then double-click on another song in the playlist (without pushing the "stop" button), there's an ALSA error and the new song gets quickly rewinded:

The attached patch fixes this.
