MPD (Music Player Daemon) hangs for seconds occasionally on play/pause
Version, Distribution, Desktop Environment:
Distro: Arch Linux
Desktop: Plasma 5.20.5
Description of Problem:
Occasionally, my MPD hangs for a few seconds upon trying to start playing something after some time being on Pause.
This is reproducible even on older versions of PipeWire. It's not reproducible using PulseAudio. However, as of writing this, I cannot figure out an easy way to reproduce it consistently, so I don't have any sort of errors to share. Please allow this issue to stick for a while, until I reproduce it again as it happens a few times per day. In the meantime, I would kindly ask for describing all the relevant debug info which I should prepare for when it happens.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Pause MPD
- Wait for some time (i.e. minutes)
- Play MPD
Actual Results: MPD hangs for a few seconds. Both MPD clients I use (Cantata and mpc) hang upon executing anything that results in a command to the daemon/server itself. After a few seconds, playing starts and all is back to "normal".
Expected Results: Playing should start immediately.
