ipod 5G 60gig, tested using multiple WPS files, but initially discovered with 'kelp' - occasionally, when switching songs (I think specifically when starting playback in a new directory) the incorrect file will be displayed - kelp or other themes will display the filename information of a different file in the current directory, but the 'next file' will be displayed correctly. starting playback of files (in my case, I always started with the 'first' file) in different directories will continue to exhibit this problem. However, 'stopping' (holding play/pause for a few seconds) and restarting playback will eliminate the problem.

I've switched themes while this problem has been showing up, and the incorrect information would still be displayed. I've yet to notice this problem *start* when not using kelp, as I almost always use 'kelp', and the problem is uncommon.
This task depends upon

Looks to me as this is a playback problem rather than a WPS problem. I'm changing the category.

Don't now if it's the same problem, but I occasionally see the wrong info displayed for the currently playing track. Instead, a previously played track is displayed (31 or 32 tracks before). This is due to wrapping in the playback tracks[] array - it can be seen more frequently if you edit playback.h to define MAX_TRACK as 4, but it's still very intermittent.

Hi Overand, I fixed a similar problem recently. Please can you try with a new build and report back whether the problem still occurs or not.
