This is awful news to be reading. I am still stalled on Step 3 (uploading) of the iTunes Match process so haven't tried streaming yet (since what shows up in my iOS device is in very inconsistent state).
All in all, this whole thing has been a major fiasco. I already requested a refund which has gone unanswered as I type. You should request yours too. In fact, Apple should own up to their failings and quickly reimburse everyone who signed up for this.

I've seen this happen at times. I'm streaming on a Mac from a library matched on Win7.
Sorry to say, I haven't done any investigation to see if it happens every time on the same tracks.

I came here about this issue. I have found several of my songs that do this. In one case, a song playing as part of a playlist stops after 1:55 and the next track begins. However, the original song/art still shows on the iphone and the time indicator bar continues as if it's still playing the original song. I tried going to the album and playing the song and got the same result except it was the next song on the album as opposed to the playlist.

Similar to the problem that I'm having. I started a discussion here: https://discussions.apple.com/message/16759669#16759669
Are you having the problem on your iPod/iPhone or on your computer?
I'm curious, if you delete the songs from the computer and re-download them from the cloud, do you have the same issues on the computer as yoru iPhone?

I wonder if the network connection isn't fast enough to keep up with the streaming? Do the songs play OK if you tell it to download all of them?

A little more info...I deleted not only one of the songs (Stones - Brown Sugar) but also the whole album (fromiTunes and the cloud). Then I added my original back to my library and played it, all good. I downloaded iTunes on another laptop and "connected" to the cloud and attempted to play the song. At the exact same point (1:55 mark), Brown Sugar Ended and the next song began.

It's always at the same point, which for me, is almost exactly halfway through each song.
Does it actually switch to the next song, or does it appear that Brown Sugar is still playing? For me, the music changes, but the song doesn't.

Same here. It appears Brown Sugar is playing but the next song has started.

Listened to a couple different play lists earlier and had multiple issues with songs "ending" halfway through.
C'mon Apple, what's the deal?

I'm still having issues with match not playing complete songs. I gave up and disabled it on my phone a month ago but thought I'd try again. Today I played (tried to) an album and 8 of the first 10 songs ended around the halfway point before I gave up. The same thing happens on my secondary computer (I checked the same album when I got home) but works fine when played through AppleTV.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm about to lose it trying to make this work.
