I can confirm this. I first saw it while listening to an audiobook late
at night so I thought I had dozed off for a second and missed a file.
Going back to these files I can reproduce this.

My version is daily build cvs-050627

As stated above it seems to happen when only when the file are small.
For Example: files 347K, 183K, 1440K, 1770K. In my WPS I see
file1/playlist1, file2/playlist2, file4/playlist3, file4/playlist4.
Maybe there is something goofy when several files are buffered at once?
