Subject: Sandisk Sansa Clip+ certain MP3 won't playback

Sandisk Sansa Clip+ certain MP3 won't playback

Firstly, I love RockBox and want to see it continue development.
Customization for this firmware is awesome. Great work so far!

This issue involves Sansa Clip+ with several releases prior to and including
29150 and 3.7.1.
Some mp3s won't parse correctly, according to the simulator, so they won't
play or show up in the database.
If I go to File view they won't still play, it shows all the tags properly,
just skips playback on all of them.
On the original Sansa firmware, several media players on the computer, etc
there are no problems with these files.
What can I do to make these songs play? This entire album won't play. I have
re-initialized the database. output from the sim's (v 29150) log:

     Read metadata for /My_Music/A Storm - A Tree - My Mothers Head/01 -
Your Goat Is On Fire.mp3
     parsing /My_Music/A Storm - A Tree - My Mothers Head/01 - Your Goat Is
On Fire.mp3 failed (format: MP3)

Same song's output from smplayer's file properties dialog:
Your Goat Is on Fire
