H340 running current build dated 2007030[78] (or earlier, but not
20070228) has serious problems with voice support: some voices from[78].7z don't work at all:
Everything seems to be normal, until one enters the menu while
playing music, then returns to WPS and tries to stop playback.
Playback stops for awhile and then starts again. Entering menu wihle
music is playing crashes Rockbox.

The voices from the above mentioned package which do partially work
are: Cepstral David, Reed and Synthethic Dave. With one of these
voices: Everything works as expected (including voice support), until
one plays music. If voice would be used during playback (for example
because of entering the menu), Rockbox crashes and HW reset is
required. Stopping playback in WPS will also crash Rockbox. The three
voices that partially work for me are all less than 1.3M in size.

I have voice menus enabled, language is english, I don't have disk
This task depends upon

When the crash occurs, is the disk indicator on the status bar always lit?

I'm blind, so can't see the disk indicator, however, it does not seemt
to make difference, whether the disk is spinnig or not.

We seem to have two different problems here:
1. Some voices don't work at all.
2. When voice is working, Rockbox crashes if it tries to speak while
playing music, if File browser has not been visited yet. When I
first select Files from the main menu (with a working voice) and then
play something (previously I just resumed playback without entering Files),
Rockbox will not crash, when entering menus, stopping playback etc.

So a temporary solution to the second problem is to set Start screen
to be the file browser.

This has probably been fixed with LinusN's commit this morning. Try a current build and report back.

Yes, the problem has been fixed. Thank you Linus!
