I have an iRiver 20GB H10 running Rockbox 3.7. I recently updated from 3.4 (or 3.5 -- i'm not entirely sure) and have started noticing the following problems.
When I'm listening to audio files on my mp3, I'll often fast forward or rewind a little bit, depending on what I'm listening to. Sometimes while a file is playing, I will browse my files and select another one to play.
Most of the time this works as expected but sometimes (maybe %10-15 of the time) playback will get corrupted, and the only solution is to reboot the player. Most commonly, the file looks like it loads but sound stops working. Trying to get it working again by loading another file (using a bookmark or just clicking on the file) or reloading the file doesn't work. Instead the player freezes up and the only solution is to restart the player. However, powering down takes a lot longer than usual, and I have to hold down the power key the whole time. Then it seems like the player doesn't go off until I let go the power key I had been holding. Most of the time, rebooting the player works and the file continues playing.
Less commonly, when I try to load a new file instead of playing all I get it a bunch of static, which continues until I reboot the player.
I have attached a resent settings dump of my player.

Reason for closing: Fixed
Additional comments about closing: This is assumed fixed with r29476. The change has been merged to v3.8 branch as well and might be part of a 3.8.x version.
