If I enable voicing of any kind, then it causes major problems on my 340, with a daily build from the last couple of days. Currently loaded is CVS-20060619.
First off, no file/dir voicing occurs.
Second off, when I play a music file, although the file loads and the WPS shows correct data, no playback occurs, and the counter sticks at 0:00. Sometimes you will hear a tiny fraction of playback, but nothing more. The unit just stops there. It will respond ok to pause/play, and will respond to stop. However when pressing stop, it gets as far as the Creating Bookmark splash, and locks up completely, needing a hard reset with a paperclip.
After a bit of messing around trying to find which build broke it (it used to work, so I thought) I finally hit on what the problem is - while investigating another issue with voicing, I renamed my english.voice file to stop it being loaded on bootup, and this is totally the cause of the problem. If I rename it back to english.voice, everyting works as expected, but if in rename it to EEEenglish.voice, then file/dir voicings fail, and the unit locks up as described above.
The workaround is obvious (load the file and name it correctly), but this bug will hit any user who wants to voice files and dirs, but who doesn't have an appropriate voice file loaded.

Reason for closing: Fixed
Additional comments about closing: The original problem is resolved - any other voice-related crashes should be logged seperately.
