Subject: Re: Track skipping & shuffling cause hard lockups.

Re: Track skipping & shuffling cause hard lockups.

From: gl <gl_at_ntlworld.com>
Date: 2006-03-27

I get two seperate shuffle lockups - the guiflash one, but also a random
lockup that, when it happens, always happens at the end of a track (without
any gui messages) - but it can take several to many tracks before it
happens.

I'm not sure when they were introduced, but the random one seems
recent-ish - at least I didn't notice it before (but I also don't shuffle
for long periods usually so it's possible I missed it).
