Only playlists are being shuffled as for now. If a song is skipped it is
probably because of something else, like a file error or a nonexisting file
(or maybe even a bug :-).

That is a hardware feature. We can't prevent the STOP/OFF key from shutting
down the unit.

Wouldn't we rather have menu items that fit on screen? Not that we wouldn't
implement a menu item scroller, but I'm just wondering. This will probably
have to wait until after 1.2.

The scroller is currently limited to one line at a time. We may scroll the
Artist as well as soon as we have fixed that.

That is because the scroller thread is unaware of the other text on screen,
and it is not an entirely easy fix. That will probably have to wait until

No. The disk must spin up. We could of course delay the save until the disk
spins up for another reason.
The SAVE_TO_DISK feature will not be included in the 1.2 release though,
because it isn't tested enough.

Ok. Or maybe we could change it in larger steps. Not in 1.2 though.

We are working on this. It will not be in the 1.2 release.
Thank very much you for your excellent report!!!!
