I didn't have a 64MB target at the time this was originally a problem.
Maybe try it on a 32MB. The problem is when dircache can't initialize,
it does a foreground scan each boot. This may have been fixed, but if it
isn't, was one of the problems with enabling it by default. Of course,
it may be better now, which would be great. Just mean if I recall one of
the problems was that it'd be nice if it'd disable itself after some
means of recognizing that it can't initialize.

Also, on a related note, does it fail with embedded album art or other
'large' metadata still?
