FS#8180 - maze game causing freezing on sansa e250

Prefetch abort
at 656C6966 (0)

when game “maze” selected for the first time.

opened up disconnected battery.

started up, first thing went and tried to see if maze would do the same thing.

played maze for a few seconds and decided to tray another game.

when attempting to play jewel, the screen said loading and i could not get back to menu, disconnected battery again (this time it was the normal loading screen, no prefetch message this time.)
started up again, started a song this tie, then went and started jewel. played jewel for a few moments and decided to try another game. played jackpot for a few moments and decided to try maze again. started maze, played for a few seconds, and decided to return to the menu. attempted to start jackpot again only to find that the loading screen showed up, music kept playing, game didn’t start, no response to buttons, pulled battery again.

It seems to me that there is something wrong with the maze game in rockbox build r15607-071113 that causes freezes either on entry into maze or the next thing after maze.

I have not tried in the latest daily build, and i did not find any other bugs about “maze”. I have not seen this behavior in any other plugins. I am a new rockbox user and the version I have listed above is my first and only version, I do not know when this problem was introduced.

Since it required removing the battery, I would rate this bug pretty severe.

Tried to reproduce w/16899 and could not. Seems like a random case.

There’s no need to remove the battery. Holding the ‘power off’ button for about 15 seconds (or maybe a little longer) should power off the device, even when the software is completely frozen. Interestingly, the prefetch abort number spells ‘elif’ in ASCII, or ‘file’ backwards.
