Yes, and start playing one of the songs that match the search.

Yes, I add songs, some of which match the search pattern, and are
therefore displayed right and proper.

Yep, here's where I appear to have missed a bit of information; the
next/previous buttons seem to work fine _if_ Shuffle is not on. If
shuffle is on, then the next/previous buttons ignore the newcomers. In
fact, even if one doesn't press anything but just waits for the songs to
change, the newly imported songs aren't played.

So this seems to actually a problem in the Shuffle functionality in
combination with importing new songs.
