I figured out what was causing my problems, it was my fault. When I
upgraded to the new firmware, I went through all the settings, to see
what had changed. One of the things I did was enable "First Keypress
Enables Backlight Only".

Since most of the time the backlight was off when I was pressed
Play/Pause, it did not respond, which is what made me think it was
broken. I disabled "First Keypress Enables Backlight Only", and it
worked as expected.
