I've a question on this topic. I have the bookmark patch installed, but also
use the normal resume ("Ask"-setting).

#1 When I restart the jukebox it resumes in the right place.
If I press "ON" now to browse the directory I'm in the main path
and not in the direcory that was playing before the unit was shut down.
Can this behaviour be changed so that resume also applies to changing
into the right directory?

I love the bookmark patch, it's really great for audio books and I use it a lot..
It however doesn't solve the problem that it's difficult to navigate whithin a list
of file names with identical beginnings. We had a discussion on automatic
shortening of file names a long time ago which lead to this feature request that would
solve this problem. After discussion not much has happened that's why I
would like to put the topic on the list again to see if anyone else feels it's useful.
