Audio playback freezes during screen rotation

before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
SOFTWARE VERSION: 0.3-8thp0
(Settings > General > About product)
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
1. Start audio playback with automatic rotation enabled.
2. Rotate display.
EXPECTED OUTCOME: Screen rotates with no break in music playback.
ACTUAL OUTCOME: Music playback stutters and freezes for the duration of the
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199)

I believe this is caused by bug 6203. Please wait for the next firmware update
to see if this fixes the problem. As you can see in this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rjXAGlLDHU the rotation did not always cause
the freezing (the video was taken with a pre-release firmware where the bug was
not yet introduced). I suspect when the fix to bug 6203 is released that this
bug will go away as well.
It would be nice if you could re-test this after the next firmware update to
see if the problem still exists. Thank you for your bug report.

At least on my N900's production firmware, this is easily reproducble every
time so it's interesting to see your example on pre-production firmware.
Whenever Nokia pushes out new firmware, I'll test this again and write in.
Can screen rotation be optional? Random gyrating every time I put the phone
down is driving me up the wall.
Panucci also pauses playback when locking the screen or doing any simple
I notice is uses a lot more CPU just to play files than the builtin player.
Maybe its the underlying Python. Don't know, but it is a resource hog.
Awesome player though, love it :)
I can confirm that this bug is FIXED! Get the latest Firmware update (PR1.1)
and audio playback in this application is glitch free during auto rotation!!!

Panucci music playback glitches a little for me in PR 1.1.1 during rotation,
although only for a tenth of a second or so.
