So it IS the return of the user-config menu.

OK, fair, AI may be a valid term, but perhaps a tad overkill here.

As I say, I could never understand where the problem was myself. The hack
job which would lead to this [recursive] kind of error, is NOT akin to the
skill levels of those allowed to submit code to Rockbox - we have some
5417-hot programmers here!

I can only suggest that you may like to code up a solution and see what the
devs say. If you need any help, I think I am allowed to advise now, but I
may not write any code.
