First of all I'm new to rockbox and Flyspray, so I hope I'm not messing up the tracker and posting duplicate bugs etc.
I'm using iAaudio X5 30GB, with rockbox daily build: rockbox-iaudiox5-20070125.

When playing a song, Enter quick screen (Long REC), change shuffle option on/off, and return to the WPS.
The "Next:" song is not updated on the WPS.
This task depends upon

I'm pretty sure this is the expected behavior and Rockbox won't change your playlist unless you tell it to 'reshuffle playlist' in the playlist menu.

I'm not sure if I made myself clear before: Only the "Next:" song indication on the WPS is not updated, but the next song that will be played is a different one which means that the playlist is actually reshuffled.

After trying this again, I noticed that the "Next:" song indication on the WPS is changed eventually after a few seconds (around 20 seconds). (Maybe when trying to read the next song's data and fill the playback buffer?)

Another strange thing I've noticed when trying this: Somehow the LCD is not turned off at all (my setting is 5 seconds).

When I play a file with shuffle off and then turn on shuffle, the "Next:" setting is updated, it just can take a bit of time.

Seems to work here, if you're patient. It someiimes takes a minute or so though!
