That means you can't skip forward directly followed by
fast-forwarding within the next track anymore, because it would
trigger folder skip?

While I agree that folder skip might be useful for some people
(not for me), imho this short-long click combo is another
example for unintuitiveness: Here a combination of two standard
operations (short click == skip, hold button == seek) triggers
something completely different (folder skip). It's a good
example why we should *not* try to mimick any original firmware...

Just my $0.02,
