Not being familiar with the internals of Rockbox, yes I do use the
dymaically created playlist when I load a directory. I knew that much.
But if I really care to pick up where I left off, I use pause. If it
shuts off I was away long enough to not care where I left off (that's
what the bookmarking is for). Unless resume is somehow used to handle
PAUSE, I simply don't use resume. And yes, I have "resume on startup"
set to no.
And I don't use the database. I've spent way too much time making my
directory layout exceptionally clean and easy to navigate.
I'll get used to a different key action than the retail firmware uses.
