Player: Sansa Clip+
FW: Rockbox 3.12, official stable build, but it happens on older versions too

While playing some FLAC file, RB skips to the next track automatically. I know there is a lot of similar bugs, but this is unique:)
Firstly, the problem is repeatable on my Clip. Skipping is always at one time, e.g. 00:19 for one file and 01:40 for other one. I think that these files are stored on corrupted part of SD card. OK, if it's corrupted then I have to buy a new one, but when I switch to original Sansa Clip+ firmware it play normally! At problematic places (00:19 or 01:40) there is a little 'click', but it continues to play. My conclusion is: if original FW handles such a files on bad memory, Rockbox should has workaround also.
Files are OK, when I copy them to internal memory, Rockbox plays continuously.
I didn't notice skipping of MP3 files on the same SD card, only with FLACs.
Computer players (e.g. AIMP) plays FLACs from this SD without any problems.

I've attached movies that presents the bug on 2 different tracks. Hope it helps.
This task depends upon

But I think that files are OK, because Rockbox plays them well when that files are on internal memory. Skipping is only on external SD (Goodram 8GB SDHC Class 4).
