Nearly all of the higher-level rockbox code runs in the sim (apps/*),
and a significant amount of the firmware/ stuff. The goal is that
everything that isn't hardware-specific gets compiled natively and runs
as-is in the sim. See the UiSimulator wiki page.

I've noticed that playlists don't get created correctly in the sim also
(I actually thought it was a problem with my branch at the time, since I
was doing some development relating to playlist creation). I don't know
how long that's been going on, you might want to put it on the bug
