No it doesn't happen with all files, and files that have previously failed
will then play normally later on, so as I said above, I don't think it's
an issue with the files themselves. None of the files actually sound
corrupted.

However since posting the query, I haven't actually seen another freeze
since, so fingers crossed ...
