Subject: playback sometimes freezes when fastforwarding, rewinding, or playing different file

playback sometimes freezes when fastforwarding, rewinding, or playing different file

Before I open up a bug ticket, I wanted to see if anyone else has this
issue, and can perhaps offer a solution.

I have an iRiver 20GB H10 running Rockbox 3.7. I recently updated from 3.4
(or 3.5 -- i'm not entirely sure) and have started noticing the following

When I'm listening to audio files on my mp3, I'll often fast forward or
rewind a little bit, depending on what I'm listening to. Sometimes while a
file is playing, I will browse my files and select another one to play.

Most of the time this works as expected but sometimes (maybe %10-15 of the
time) playback will get corrupted, and the only solution is to reboot the
player. Most commonly, the file looks like it is playing (progress bar is
moving) but sound stops working. Trying to load another file (using a
bookmark or just clicking on the file) causes the player to sort of freeze.
It doesn't respond, but it isn't completely frozen since I am still able to
shut it off by holding down the power key. However, powering down takes a
lot longer than usual, and I have to hold down the power key the whole time.
Then it seems like the player doesn't go off until I let go the power key I
had been holding. Most of the time, rebooting the player works and the file
continues playing.

Less commonly, when I try to load a new file instead of playing all I get it
a bunch of static, which continues until I reboot the player.

Has anyone else noticed this? Any suggestions.
