FS#12109 - iPod 3G screen flickers after boot and resuming playback with nothing to resume, no warning
This occurs on Stable 3.8.1 and all builds currently up to Tuesday, May 10, 2011 (r29850-110510).
When my iPod 3G is powered on with no song in the queue to be resumed, and the "resume Playback" item is selected, the screen flickers, the quick glimpse of the selected Now Playing theme can be seen (for me, DancePuffDuo, but also confirmed for every other one I've tried) and it returns me back to the Main Menu without any warning... just an abrupt return.
I've reinstalled stable as well as various builds leading up to the date above and all have the same effect.
The way to reproduce this bug is to Play a single song from the database that is by itself (in the artist/album category of your choosing, or, the last song in an artist/album grouping) and then, after it is done playing and returns you to the database or main menu, shut down and restart Rockbox. Select the Resume Playback item on the Main Menu. The screen should flicker and abruptly return you to the Main Menu without any warning that there is nothing to resume playing.
This bug does not reproduce with the iPod 3G simulator with 05/10/2011's build (r29850-110510).
