This happened before VBR support too. We don't know yet why it happens.

This is a known issue. It is because the display changes when the DMA pointer enters the 64KB block that contains the track change.
We will fix this by modifying the loader so each DMA block only ever contains one track, i.e. track changes happen on a block boundary.
