Ive tried "Update VBR File" option on a VBR file on my
Archos and everytime the HD "refills" the buffer,
playback is inturrupted for a couple of seconds. Loading
And Playing back the "updated" file in Soundforge works
fine. Also the WPS displays some duff information:

My WPS on the updated file

Dr And The Medics
Spirit In The Sky
80's Hits
MP3 Rate: 32Kbs
MP3 Size: 488Kbs
MP3 Time: 2:45-21:12

Before updating the file, MP3 Rate showed 191Kbs and
MP3 Time showed the correct song length.

What does "Update VBR file" actually do? Am I doing
something wrong?
This task depends upon

This sounds like a bug in the VBR update code. Can you
attach the file to this bug report so we can analyze it?
