Turns out it was no fluke. The RLOD test build makes using Rockbox in
the car (my main use) pretty much impossible for me. I have more
problems with it in one 1-hour commute than I have in a whole week of
commuting with Rockbox 2.1.

The symptoms are always the same: it tries to load mp3 data into the
RAM buffer, the red LED stays on, nothing happens for a while, and then
the unit is either completely dead and needs a restart, or skips a song
or two and continues playing somewhere in the middle of the second-next
song or thereabouts, with the likelyhood of something similar happening
again on the next buffer refill vastly increased.
