When playing large files (eg 80meg 2 hour long Oggs) rockbox hangs if you fast forward beyond what is already loaded in memory. The hard drive spins up then rockbox hangs, requiring a reset. Ffwding shorter sections works till it needs to load more from disk.

Tested using large oggs. Not sure if this bug affects other codecs (FLAC seems unable to fast forward at present, I have no large MP3s).

Discussed briefly on IRC on 16th April.
This task depends upon

Is this still happening with the latest CVS now?

Now fixed for current CVS. Thanks!

Flac seeking still fails with "codec failure" splash, not sure if thats a known issue.

As an added bonus seeking large chunks seems subjectively faster (time from spin up till playback) than before the breakage. :)
