That's exactly how both my 0.21-fixes system and my trunk system works 
(just tested both of them to make sure).  When in FFWDSTICKY and:

 - I hit P (PAUSE), it pauses.
 - I hit Space/Enter (SELECT), it resumes playback
 - I hit Ctrl+P (PLAY), it resumes playback

This behavior makes sense in light of the keybinding action names.  I'm 
using all defaults for keybindings, which are:

TV Frontend/PLAYBACK = P
TV Playback/PLAY = Ctrl+P
TV Playback/PAUSE = P

Note that PAUSE really acts as a "toggle pause" (so it will pause if 
playing or play if paused).  And, at least on the trunk/dev box, all 
defaults for settings.

So, if something did change between 0.21-fixes and 0.22-fixes, it must 
have been something which only happened with some (non-default) 
combination of the millions of untestable settings combinations.  ;)  If 
you can think of some setting you may have changed from the default on 
your system (back in 0.21-fixes) which might be related, I'd be happy to 
look into the change.
