After a lot of trial and error I found out the following.

It appears that 3.10 on my Clip V2 writes a bad nvram.bin file. When I try to set another interface language, my Clip freezes. It does not react to input and the clock in the top line doesn't update anymore. The FM radio kept on playing though. I haven't tried all available settings in the menu, just the ones I occasionally use. But the problem never occurred anywhere else, just upon selecting another language.

When I delete nvram.bin, I can set a language. Then I switch the Clip off and on again, and the problem comes back.

See attached the nvram.bin which causes a freeze.

PS.: No Sansa Clip in the Player Type selection on the left.
