I'm using an iPod Nano.
Here's one way the problem occurs:
1. Open a folder containing more than one file and let Rockbox play at least part of more than one file.
2. Hold down Long Play to stop playback.
3. The name of the track that was being played is not spoken; typically either the name of the first file in the folder or the file I initially played will be spoken instead (I am using Talk MP3 Clips, so I assume whatever is spoken is also displayed, but I'm blind so can't verify this).
I have Follow Playlist on, so I would have expected the name of the file I was just listening to to be spoken.
An even more confusing situation happens when I turn the player on and choose Resume Playback. Rockbox resumes as expected, but if I press long Play to stop playback, the name of the file I'm playing is not spoken. Instead, I'm in the root folder, as though I had just chosen Files from the main menu. When this behavior was discussed on the Rockbox Users list, I believe the consensus was that if Follow Playlist was on, one should be in the playlist that is being played, focused on the file that was being played just before playback was stopped.
Finally, I have Bookmark on Stop and Pause set to Yes and Load Last Bookmark turned on. When I enter a folder containing music and press Right, the song I most recently played begins playing, as expected. But if I stop playback with long Play, the first filename in the folder is spoken, not the name of the file that was playing before I stopped playback.
Thanks for looking into this, and please let me know if you have any questions about my report. I'll be glad to help in any way I can.
