Music Player Starts Automatically When Bluetoothed

Hi everybody. I recently purchased a 2012 Mazda Mazda3 with Bluetooth. I also have a Samsung Droid Charge. I've connected the two but I've had some problems recently.

It's involving the Music Player app that's already on the phone. Sometimes I'll listen to BBC World Service Live through my BBC News app and something will happen like I get a call while listening or something similar that I don't recall. Something will cause an interruption. Maybe I'll have the app playing through my car, I'll get out of the car and turn it off, and then I'll get back in the car. When Bluetooth connects, it will start playing random bits of audio that are on my phone. Specifically, it's been playing random ringtones that I've downloaded through apps.

I don't want this to happen as often, the music player ringtones are MUCH LOUDER than the music or other audio coming through the audio channel from my phone.

Has anybody encountered this problem? How can I stop Music Player from starting on it's own when normal bluetooth audio play starts after an interruption?

Thanks for any help,
