until the r20510 there is a bug in pictureflow with certain podcasts. Take any podcast from:
and rebuild database and pictureflow cache, then select one of the podcast covers. Sometimes theres a data abort, sometimes the player crashes, sometimes there are weird characters on the screen sometimes only the fonts are disappearing.
I think these files were produced with software on Mac OS X. I think they include some itunes specific tags with a lot of data, e.g. comments with many urls and such things.
I'm using a E280v1.
This task depends upon

I've managed to make a mp3 file that reproduces these symptoms with version r20858.
The file is located in the following path:

\MUSIC\Podcasts\Chaos Computer Club\Chaosradio Express

I've used a fresh version of rockbox with only database enabled. Perhaps its caused by the lyrics-tag...

with build r20941 the problem seems to be fixed...
