yes, this is the point of the feature, if you had a file paused while using
this feature you would basically lose most of the benefits of it.

I only use this feature with long files, such as audio book tracks and film
soundtracks, and I can't see why anyone would want to use it with fairly
short files.

and skipping to new tracks is still possible, you just have to do a double
click either on left or right respectively and that will jump you to the
next or previous track.
As a matter of fact, I would like to see this double click behaviour
extended to the rest of skip length, so that it is possible to navigate in
fixed chunks as before, but a double press of right or left would move to
the next or previous track.
