(Explain in detail what you do (e.g. tap on OK) and what you see (e.g. message
Connection Failed appears))
1. Start an album playing back, cover art works as expected for first track
played. (In my case, cover art is a cover.jpg file in the album folder).
2. Lock the screen and keys, or wait for the screen to lock by itself
3. Let the current track finish and a new track start
4. Unlock the screen - the cover art is missing from the now playing screen,
even though it exists. Skipping to the next song brings back the cover art,
which will show properly even if you skip back to the previous song. 

Cover art is correctly shown if the track changes while the screen is

No cover art shown for tracks that start playback while screen is blanked.

Is this also still an issue in 2.2009.51-1?
Also, this report needs better steps to reproduce. As written:
Explain in detail what you do (e.g. tap on OK) and what you see (e.g. message
Connection Failed appears).

Click by click, otherwise it is hard to reproduce.

This seems to be fixed on my device after upgrading to 2.2009.51-1.
Comment 5 Peter Oliver 2010-01-18 21:51:15 UTC
Still broken for me in 2.2009.51-1.

I'm able to reproduce with the following steps:

Start -> Media player -> (little black bars in the bottom right corner) -> Now
playing -> Clear current playlist -> Music -> (artist) -> (album) -> (menu) ->
Add songs to current playlist -> (little black bars in the bottom right corner)
-> (play) -> (ffw to near end of track) -> (power button) -> Lock screen and

Then wait for the current track to end and the next track to start.

(power button) -> (swipe to unlock)

Cover art appears for a fraction of a second before it's replaced by the
generic turntable image.  Note that this affects tracks where the cover art is
taken from cover.jpg, but it does not affect tracks that have embedded cover

Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).

Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).
