If you hit the button on the toolbar to hide the descriptions, then when you go into smoothedit the 'focus' is already on the edit window (as the descriptions aren't there!) so then space will start it playing.
That may not be a great solution though, as obviously if you want to set intros extros etc. then you can't without displaying the descriptions.
I'll put a note in the to-do list and see if theres something we can do in a future version
