	as far as I do understand the queue code, your understanding is
correct. I think what you want to do is to connect to queue 'running'
callback, it is called when min-threshold-time is reached, then lower
min-threshold-time to 0 and connect to 'underrun' signal. When underrun
is fired, set min-threshold-time to 1 second again a display some nice
buffering message to the user.
