If the wps has a paused track loaded, and then I load a new song and then press play to start it, sometimes the track will start at 0:02 or 0:03 instead of 0:00. It's my guess that it starts approximately n seconds late, where n is the number of seconds since the song was loaded and the wps displayed. I haven't gotten a gap over 3 seconds.

Also, I've noticed that when doing the above, sometimes the displayed time jumps from 0:03 to 0:02 to 0:03 again very quickly and then continues as normal.

I don't think this is a problem on the 5G ipod.
This task depends upon

Playback has been reworked recently - please could you load a current build, retest and post back if this is still a problem or not. (This means a cutting-edge build, not 3.8.1.)

Sorry for the late reply. The issue appears to be fixed using the latest build on my iPod 3G.
