mp3 files <=0.34 secs not playing on Droid X using MediaPlayer

 Getting reports that mp3 files <= 0.34 secs in length, are not played
(or, at least, inaudible) on the Droid X.  Works fine on other devices
I've tried (e.g. Nexus One, Hero, G1)

All files longer than 0.34 secs are working fine. I've tested this
with about 100 files (mixture of short and long) and the correlation
is 100%.

Has anyone else experienced this?

 Should also mention the file format:

44100Hz, 64kbps, mono

 Comparing the logs of a file that plays and one that doesn't play.
Well, they are the same except the one that does play has these
additional entries:

D/AudioHardwareMot( 7494): AudioStreamOut::wake: disabling SRC
D/AudioHardwareMot( 7494): Output 0x11c48 exiting standby
D/OMX_MP3 ( 7494): MP3DEC_HandleUSNError():3548
E/ProfileVideoFrameDrops( 7494): PVMediaOutputNodePort :: Early 0

E/ProfileVideoFrameDrops( 7494): PVMediaOutputNodePort :: Early
0.000000 % :: OnTime 5245.171875 % :: Late -0.000000 %

So, it appears not even an attempt is made to play the shorter file
(but no error message is given) and the log simply reads:

2. IMAP TLS (accept all certificated) error on Android 2.2 (Froyo)


just got update to FRF91 on Nexus One this morning. Issue: the email
account, which was working perfectly on former Android 2.1, is not
working. Account is configured as IMAP, TLS (accept all certificate).
Error I got is: "Cannot verify hostname:".
I tried to both specify name ( or change it and insert
concered IP address. Both cases, same error.

How can that be solved from Nexus One side, i.e. without acting on
IMAP server where I cannot change anything?
