Turning pause fade off didn't make any difference. Note this is still using
the 070706 bootloader.

update your bootloader!

Not experiencing this with r16929 and the most recent bootloader.

thank you for the commments.

In r17588-080520, with new bootloader, the song-step functions seem to work OK.

However, a problem remains. A rapid series of button presses "|<<", ">||", etc. often results in a playback crash, with no more audio or, sometimes after a second or two, a high-pitched whine. (The display shows ">".) The whine goes away on a subsequent keypress. The rest of the UI appears to continue functioning normally. Hitting the Menu button, followed by choosing "Now playing", usually restores audio. (Sometimes it leads to the high-pitched whine, instead.) The battery appears to drain very fast during this "playback crash" condition.
