On short tracks e.g. 0.5s:

1) Files, track, Select fails to play the track, despite that the WPS appears and shows the track and the playing icon. Track Skip to the next track fails to start that playing, and so on until the last track in the current playlist, which does start playing.

Workaround: press Play/Pause to pause, then press again to play.

2) Files, long select, Properties fails to show the duration.

Workaround: none known in Rockbox.

These issues do not appear on 1s files.

Demo on Windows Simulator build 9d0c0e3-170115 using custom WPS displaying current playlist, showing:

* first 1s tracks succeeding
* then 0.5s tracks failing
This task depends upon

Confirmed on ipod classic 6g with dev build from a few days ago. I'm looking to get involved, so I'll try to take a look and see if I can figure out what's going on.

I haven't yet found time to look at this. Have you tried other file formats?
