This is caused by Pandora server download rates. Most of the time, the data rate I see is very fast. Periodically, the Pandora server will download at a rate that is slower than the song play rate. So, when the Kodi player finds the end of the song (which is only as far as it has downloaded), it stops playing that song and will go to the next one.

I have patched pandoki to have it handle this issue, but the patch has not been folded into the baseline. You can find the patch at
https://github.com/rocky4546/gominoa-xbm...o.pandoki/
plugin.audio.pandoki-0.9.3a.zip

This patch only works in cache mode. It handles the slower data rate from Pandora by opening multiple songs at one time. The default is to cache 3 files in parallel ahead of what is playing. It also as a few other upgrades such as playing at the maximum 128K rates for normal Pandora users.

Why hasn't it been merged?

The product has not had an upgrade and mine is working fine. There should be something in your kodi log which may explain the issue. If you can post a page of log lines leading upto the exception and the exception pandoki is showing from the kodi log file, it would help identify the issue.

Mine works OK also on Krypton.

I just discovered on lyrics in general settings if you turn on lyrics with visual effects you get the lyrics a line at a time in bold colored letters.
I was trying to figure out how to do this for over a year.

This fix is working for single songs, but it won't play the next song in the list.

Hmm, I assume you installed the 0.9.3a zip file that will overlayed on top of the current Pandoki install. If you can provide the kodi.log file found in the temp directory (at least the portion associated with Pandoki), I could see what is happening. One update added was to increase the logging and to have the popup message provide information on what is happening on Kodi. If that does not show what happened, we can turn on debug logging as well.
