I've noticed recently with the daily build from 12-30-02
on until and including today, songs have been having
very long loading times. Its weird, because actually, if I
wait until a song is maybe 20-30 secs in, its loads
instantly when I press next song, but If I try to skip over
at the beginning of the song, it can take almost 10
seconds to load the new song.

Ive got: Archos 10gig Studio - Latest daily build.

This task depends upon

At the end of a song, the next one is already buffered in RAM and thus
starts instantly. At the start of a song, when you press next the Archos
needs to load the next file from disk which takes about 10 seconds. There
is no other way possible.

Are you saying 1.4 does not have these
long load times? It sure does for me.
