When scrolling a directory of ~100 files (ie: holding the down arrow) whilst playing an mp3, playback halts. Playback only continues when the button is lifted.

It is a CPU overloading problem.

These are comments from newer bug report #5307(closed):

Stops, or just skips?

Actually pauses for a sec and then continues playing

It is a known issue. Unfortunately AFAIK it is a CPU problem.
Too much thins are happening when you scroll, so the CPU can't keep up.

We all hope for better optimization on audio codecs.

Hi Jason, please retest with a new build - this should now be fixed by the updated scheduler.

all fixed! i can scroll through 200+ items with no skip. the scroll speed slows down indicating the scheduler is doing its job. great work!!
