Subject: Audio dropout and cosmetic issues on iPod nano

Audio dropout and cosmetic issues on iPod nano

Hey list,

Just informing developers, and wondering if these are known issues (or if
this is pure operator error...):

Since build r13396-070515, I have been experiencing an intermittent audio
dropout at the beginning of tracks. All of my audio files are OGG Vorbis,
variable bitrate, average 256kb/s. I start the track, it starts playing
almost instantaneously, and within 5-10 seconds, the player acts as if it
was paused, the disk activity icon appears, and it stays in this state for
about 2-3 seconds, then continues playing as if nothing happened. I had
never seen this happen on earlier builds. It is not an easily reproducible
error. I am wondering if there is a "prebuffer"-type setting I'm missing--it
seems like the player would be in good shape if it buffered a nice amount of
data before starting playback.

Also, on a less serious note, I noticed icons do not show up correctly after
changing colors. I prefer, instead of black text on a gray background, white
text on a black background. As soon as I set this up, the (black) icons next
to "Files", "Settings", etc. all disappear. I miss them...:-) If I'm not
mistaken, they changed to a color that contrasted with the background in
earlier builds, and they don't seem to now.

They are probably mistakes on my part, but just in case they're not...
