I've just noticed that a bug has appeared stopping
gapless playback from working, the last daily build that I
have that plays back seamlessly is 20021127. The first
time I noticed the problem was in 20021213, and it still
does not work in 20030106.
I have not got to try any versions in-between, so I'm
sorry I cannot say exactly in which version the bug

20021127 works
20021213 bug
20030106 bug

The bug occurs only when the MP3 tracks have ID3 (I've
only tried v1.1) tags. Tracks with no tags, and tracks
with no tags but Xing VBR headers, play back perfectly
with no gaps.

Some example test tones are included:

Tones2, No Headers: Plays perfectly with no gaps
on all builds.
Tones2, Xing Headers only: Plays perfectly with no
gaps on all builds.
Tones2, ID3 only: Gaps between tracks from
around 20021213.
Tones2, Xing Headers + ID3: Gaps again.

Hope this helps!

P.S. I've made many recordings with the latest versions,
including some 5-hour radio shows, and they are perfect
every time. No problems at all.

I've just tried the daily build from 2003-03-07 and this problem
seems to have been fixed. Thanks guys - brilliant!
