I have two suggestions:

1. How about stopping the ipod after you turn it on. then go to the
file browser and start playing a track with the select button. This
should remove the auto-resume from the equation and also generate a
fresh playlist. Then see if hitting select followed by stop gives the
same results as I see on my players.

2. Temporarily turn off the auto resume and see if you get what I observe.

I am wondering if auto resume might be interfering with the Follow
Playlist function in some subtle way. If neither one or 2 makes a
difference, perhaps you're right and there is something specific to the
ipod builds that's not working the same as the iriver builds.

Cheers,
Andrew.
