I have an HP laptop with Windows 7 pro 64-bit.  Since updating to iTunes 11 (and now 11.1), the pause/play button does not work unless I first double click the actual file.  For example, I want to listen to a podcast.   I click on the podcast file (which highlights it), then click the play button.  Nothing happens. If I double click the podcast then it will start playing, and the play/pause button will then start working.  If I (for example) then switch to music files, select the song that I want (which highlights it), then click play, the PREVIOUS file that I was listening to will start playing again unless I double click the new file that I want to hear.  I also have an issue where the same podcasts are downloaded over an over again even though I have my settings to new/unplayed only, so I have to manually delete them every day.
