Following refers to a Sansa e250 and mp3 as music format. Maybe other players and formats are also affected. I used the newest build (r15893-071208).

Generally, in the WPS screen, (while playing a song, that has been started from a folder within "Files" menu) it is possible to take the next folder as the new playlist by pressing short right, followed by a long right.

By accident, I tried this, while the current song wasn't selected from the "Files" menu, but from the database. As a result, I only heard a quiet mechanical sound for 3-5 seconds, the playback jumped to the next song in the queue and got stuck immediately. In this state the playback is confused: it is possible to switch between songs in playlist by usig left & right, but it isn't possible to play them.

Pressing Power stops this "playback" and releases the player out of this strange state.

To reproduce:
1) Start playing a song by selecting it from Database\Artist\...
2) While playing the song, press short right and long right
--> Playback is stuck
This task depends upon
