Pressing OFF key in WPS screen stops play, but does
NOT return to the original folder of the track being
played. It DOES bring up the last directory browser
screen, which may have been changed in the
meantime. In this way, pressing stop (OFF) and then
play may start the same track, or a completely different
track, depending on where the browser was left. The
problem would occur in the following way:

Open directory browser
Select album folder "A"
Select track "X"
Press PLAY (WPS opens, track "X" plays)
Press ON (directory browser opens)
Browse to "B" folder
Press ON (returns to WPS)
Press OFF (directory browser opens "B" folder)
Press PLAY (WPS opens, track "Y" plays)
There is now no way back to folder "A", track "X", where
play was interrupted.

Solution would be while in WPS:

1) Press ON key to go to directory browser
2) Press OFF key to stop play AND return to folder
where track being played is located.

This way, pressing OFF followed by PLAY would always
start where play stopped. Pressing ON followed by
PLAY would start playing a new track (if any selected).

I don't want to be rude here, but how exactly is this behaviour a bug?
Rockbox 1.3 has never claimed to work this way. You might want to file a
Feature Request if you're not happy with how Rockbox handles the
WPS/browsing behaviour.

However, we have implemented an
option for this in CVS, that allows you to select if leaving WPS should take
you to the directory where the currently playing file is, or to the place you
were when you pressed PLAY last time.
