When playing FLAC audio tracks, they are no longer playing gapless. There seems to be about a half second gap between tracks.

Issue is present even when using default theme and font; Docked or not docked.

I tried increasing the buffer and that had no affect.
This task depends upon

Did the tracks in question used to be gapless? If so, what version were you using when they were.

Yes, tracks were always gapless, and worked with the last version I was on. I back rev'd to the previous version (3.8.1) that was on the iPod and it works fine again.

I haven't had a chance to test with different themes, tho I don't think that is/was playing any part in the playback issues.

I haven't had a chance to test with other intermediary versions (post- 3.8.1 and pre- 3.11.2).
