Details

Build: any
Targets: iPod Classic, iPod Video (I'm unable to reproduce on the Fuze+)

When the viewport in the attached theme (which is very basic) is smaller than the length of the scrolling metadata text, and when I specify a foreground or background color in the WPS that differs from the colors set in the cfg file, or the user set colors, the text disappears for a second after it's done scrolling. When the length of the text is only slightly larger than the viewport, it results in a blinking effect, where the text disappears longer than it appears.

If the colors match those defined in the cfg file, or the user set ones, the bug doesn't occur (no blinking).
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  Fixed in d4d3f3c. Your workaround should not be required anymore (it shouldn't have worked anyway, %Vf and text must not be on the same line).

I forgot to add: putting the color definition (%Vf()) on the same line as the scrolling metadata definition, fixes the bug. E.g.:

%Vf(0000ff)%sfoobar
