There are some problems with the quickscreen on the Sansa Fuze. I traced it back to r31246, a text alignment bugfix:

- Quickscreen items flicker a lot and sometimes vanish for half a second on each change of an option.

- Setting the right option (Repeat) to "Shuffle" and then back to something else causes "Shuffle" to stick on screen. Leaving the quickscreen and returning to it reveals the correct setting.

This only happens for longer scrolling strings of text, e.g. "Shuffle" is "Zufallswiedergabe" in German.
This task depends upon

This happens on a Clip Zip too. If the scrolling text is long enough sometimes the scrolling text will be replaced by the whole character set ( ABCDEFG... and so on.)

Still happening on the current build, as of december 2012 (Clip+).
Items vanish, and sometimes the display gets stuck on the last option, even though the setting keeps changing internally.

Had to hard reset because the quickscreen froze. Couldn't reproduce the freezing in the simulator.
