So the correct track resumes at startup but at the wrong position? By
any chance, do you normally stay on a different screen then the WPS when
playing your audio books (e.g. the file browser or one of the menus)?
There's an known issue with Rockbox that your resume position only gets
saved while you're in the WPS.
