This is a bug. The error handling is written to retry for 5 seconds and then fail (i.e. skip to next track). For some yet unknown reason, this does not work as intended. I've been scratching my head quite a bit about this, but I fail to see it.
Actually, I just now spotted a possible cause. The function can return 0==OK even though the read failed. Fix coming up.
