Shoot, I knew it was too late for me to be posting. I should go to bed, I

I'm sorry, I didn't check to make sure I was using the right build. I tried
the 7/1/03 build and it works just like I wanted. Sorry to trouble you.

Well, I just got my JBR back from Archos (actually they sent me a new one as
replacement - wow), and tried yesterday's build... Man, how far it has
come!! Thank you guys!

I'm sorry if I missed this before, I did a quick check through my archives
for the list and didn't find anything on it... Am I right in thinking that
when the backlight is off, the first keypress is trapped to turn the
backlight back on? That seems to be the behavior I'm seeing. Anyway, this
isn't a big deal, but I'd rather have that particular functionality turned
off for the play/pause button in the WPS.

My thinking is this: when I push play/pause, I normally expect an immediate
response from the unit. Generally, when I use that button to stop the
playing of a track, it's b/c I need the unit to stop immediately - phone
call, girlfriend's "emergency", or what not. None of the other buttons have
the same requirement except off, and that's hard wired. Would it be a big
deal to change? It's not necessary, I know - I could easily modify my
behavior to match the current functionality, but I mention it b/c it is not,
strictly speaking, intuitive.

Anyway, just a thought. What do y'all think?
