You should be focused on the last file on which you were focused before
you pressed stop. Thus, if you enter the file browser from the while
playing screen, you will be focused on the currently playing file and
you can then press stop (long play in your case). You will then be
focused on the currently playing file with the music stopped.

Again, you can enter the file browser from the WPS and then press stop
(entering the file browser will move you to the currently playing file).

The big problem with having the file browser move to the currently
playing file when you press stop is that if you're already in the file
browser, you don't want it to move. What I suspect you want is to have
the file browser move to the currently playing file only when you press
stop on the WPS. Is this correct? I'm not sure if this can be done with
the new menu structure, but I'll investigate it.
