I am increasingly encountering yet another iTunes 7.0-specific bug which I am posting here in the FYI community spirit, as I haven't seen it mentioned here before. The bug as sent to Apple is posted below. Follow along with the steps to replicate a few times with different files to see if you can reproduce (it may take more than a few tries), and if you can, please reply here and also send the bug along to Apple using the iTunes > Provide iTunes Feedback feature [in iTunes].

I am increasingly experiencing a problem where playback becomes frozen at the end of a file. I have for certain seen this with a 23 minute 160 kbps AAC file encoded with iTunes 6.0.4, QuickTime 7.0.4. You may have to experiment with different files to find one that exhibits the problem.

Steps to replicate:
1) Plug in an iPod (I used iPod color display model).
2) Begin playing a song from a playlist on the iPod (I used a smart playlist with Live updating with a single rule: Play Count is 0).
3) In the Search field, enter a unique string of characters that returns 0 results (I use ";;").
4) Wait until song reaches end of playback, whereupon freeze occurs.

This is something I regularly performed with iTunes 6.x with no problem. Step 3 is useful for those times when you want a long song to finish playing and you go a little AFK without creating a special playlist.
