When software fading was committed to SVN on November 26th (r19224 after some cleanup, r19221-19223 would not compile), the LCD brightness setting was broken. Whenever the brightness is changed in the LCD display menu and subsequently a button is pressed, the brightness returns to some default brightness setting. On my Gigabeat, the effect varies according to which level of brightness is selected. Anything above 5, and the brightness dims after button press. Anything below 5, the brightness increases a small amount after button press. Setting the brightness to 5 does nothing to the brightness after button press, as this must have been determined to be the default setting in some way.
The bug is still present in my current build of r19289.
