Hi, I'm going to answer your questions inline.
I don't tend to that, but many people say it's easier for all to
create a new mail for every question, so replies are unambigious.

I am currently using it on the 320, like many others do. This is
considered as testing.

That looks good. It could be that you have the same problem as I
(sighted) have. Sometimes, I don't get the down-button right in the
middle, so there are "stray" presses to left or right.

That is strange. During bootup ?
Rockbox has a file called ".playlist_control" which is needed for
resume information. It's located in the directory ".rockbox".
You (or rather your rockbox) needs that directory. So if you deleted
it, that's the reason. If you did not remove that directory, you may
try to remove (or safely rename) that file. This will break the
resume, but rockbox will create a new such file when needed. There was
a similar error message in the past when that file could not be read.

Surely in the wiki, but I don't know where right now.

Hope to be helping, lImbus
