Well for me deleting it made the differnece between a
Rockbox that wouldn't finish booting and a normally
functioning Rockbox. I think that you are being a bit
alarmist. For a person whose Rockbox won't finish
booting, there is absolutly no downside to booting in
USB mode and deleting this file. Will it fix a "Dir
Buffer Full" error? It seems to be unrelated, but it
couldn't hurt to try it.

Sorry I don't have the details as to what caused the
problem with this file for me, but it was evidently
somehow corrupt and deleting made my Rockbox boot
correctly again. If it ever happens again I will save
a copy of the file before I delete it. Since I deleted
it while in USB mode, there was no danger that the
Rockbox software was using it at the time, and I
really don't care if any information about my last
playlist was lost. Bottom line is, deleting it made
Rockbox work again in my case.
