I haven't tested this on anything but the Sansa Clip V1. I expect if it was effecting all builds someone would have noticed ;).

I've been having frequent crashes while playing titles back with their speed/pitch altered (I mainly listen to audiobooks and love the speed up feature).

There may be two issues or they may be the same cause. The first are crashes while actually changing the speed/pitch. These crashes show the 'Data abort' screen every time. The second are freezes while playing back (not actively changing the speed/pitch - but playing after a new speed is successfully set). These crashes generally cause the screen to wake - but it displays the 'normal' playback screen (but not the correct time/location of the freeze - possibly the location when the screen went to sleep?) - if a key is pressed there is an immediate reboot.

Note - I have these same problems with MP3 playback, but MUCH less frequently.

It occurs to me that if this is actually being caused by whatever is causing the random crashes on the Clip it might make tracking the issue down easier (since this happens much more frequently).

I just installed the latest daily build (r27994-100903) to make sure the problem still exists. I've gotten it to crash a few times - but the playback crashes so far have all shown the 'Data abort' screen and not the odd behavior described above. I'll update this ticket if I see a pattern in the crashes.

Thanks! Let me know if I can do anything to help.
This task depends upon

This also was reported for r28601 on Clip ( FS#11762 ).

Edit: Can you give any more details about the Data abort (e.g. the adress)?

Is this still a problem after the various fixes that have been committed in the last year?
