I disagree. A stop button has no practical use and should not be
included. I mean what is the stop button supposed to do that the
combination of play/pause, forward/backward do not supply?
I was a bit confused when Rhythmbox first stop having a stop button, but
after getting used to it I prefer not having a stop button now.
Not having stop buttons is part of what gives GNOME 2 its flavour. I
helps tell people that we try to move the GUI forward not just walk in
the footsteps of others.
