That means that when the FMR is turned back on the "ask to resume" screen
doesn't come up. Apparently no resume info was stored.

yes, FM Recorder. I'm not complaining, just reporting anomalies. I love your
code. I do 2-3 audio books a week so I hammer it pretty hard.

My thought is that all these problems might be the result of a wild pointer or
something like that. All seem to be memory overwrite/corruption related.

Another interesting behavior is how your code writes the bookmark file. I
have my audio books in /0-books (so it will sort to the top.) Inside that
directory are the titles, for instance, /0-books/red storm rising. Your code
writes the bookmarks for all books in /0-books. I would have thought it would
have written either to the root, /.rockbox or the current directory. I'm
curious how it chooses /0-books. Do you automatically write to one level up?
