A-B repeat seems to repeat an incorrect section when used on short files. The section that is actually played back is offset prior to the correct section. The black line moving in the progress bar correlates with the incorrect section that is being played whereas the markers on the progress bar correlate with the correct section that should be played (see screenshot). I tested this with mp3, wav, and wv files all less than 20 seconds. On longer files (mp3 and aac longer than 2 minutes) it worked correctly.
This task depends upon

Additional comments about closing:  tested on my e200 and apart from the progress bar filling the wrong section (non-issue imo because it fills fine on longer tracks) it plays the correct section

This seems to be pretty broken on all files (128kbps MP3) here.

Tested this on h120 with random mp3's to no success. On a slightly related note, A-B repeat has never worked on ipods.
