I had no problems while it was still configurable, because I always
turned the power saving mode off.

When the power saving mode became available, I tried it out, but found
that it made skipping too slow for me. I turned the option off, and had
no further problems.

Now that this is no longer a configurable option, I have to use an old
build (where it still is configurable), or put up with the slowness.

I'm using cvs-030312, with power-saving mode off. If I use cvs-030313,
which has power-saving permanently on, i notice the slowness once more.

I'll try that today. Thanks for the help.
