When mp3 files are normalized using mp3gain, a small disruption occurs when switching tracks using continuous play.
According to the mp3gain specs, the tool adds APEv2 tags to the mp3 file to register normalisation details. Using these tags, the mp3 file needs to be analysed only once and the adjustments can be undone.
However, it seems that Rockbox does not deal with these tags, wich causes continuous play to be disrupted when switching tracks.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Wont Fix
Additional comments about closing:  We don't support corrupt files (and mp3s with APE tags are corrupt). Use replay gain to achieve even better results.

Verified in 3.9. Problem is still there.
