Subject: Re: 1 Bug, 1 misbehaviour and a feature

1. This should be fixed in latest CVS. Please verify.

2. Because we start playing the song while the data is still being loaded, the
start of song buffer may be (and often is) overwritten before the loading is
complete. This is why the data needs to be re-loaded when selecting previous.
Some would call this a feature as it essentially increases the mp3 buffer size for
"free". We'll look into how much benefit this actually provides and change it if
it's insignificant.

Thank you all for the incredible Rockbox!

1. If you press the Play/Pause button (I have a AJBR6K) and then the Previous Tack
button, the icon in the status bar remains in Pause mode even if the song is
playing (from the beginning). Then, if you press the Play/Pause button again, it
will cause a mess in the playing time counter and the cursor will jump at the end
of the lower bar. I think that when in pause, if you press the Previous Track
button, it should jump at the beginning of the track AND stay in pause (as Next
Track button does) and if you press it twice it should jump at the beginning of the
previous track (obviously!), in pause.

2. If you press the Previous Track button while playing the first chunk of data, it
should reuse the buffer to restart the song (sometimes works in this way but
rarely); as it is now, it refills the buffer without reason, wasting time and
power. Is there a way to correct this misbehaviour?

3. The keys I press more frequently are Up and Down while in WPS to change the
volume. I think that it would save us a lot of power if the LCD doesn't light on in
this case (you can hear when you reach the volume you want!). Just a thought.

Sorry for my poor english!
