M4A audio and update 2.8 build 1158

A user of mine's audio library fails to play since he was updated to build 1158. He let me download one of his tunes to try on my system.
The audio files play fine with iTunes and other players. But on the Roku, the songs start buffering, you hear a couple of notes and then it's like it rewinds and starts over again. It continues in this loop until you reject it.

Has anyone else seen this ? It's on at least two boxes, his and mine.

Sequence continues for about 6 times then hangs.
On each sequence it gets about 2 or 3 seconds further into the song.

Re: M4A audio and update 2.8 build 1158

So the type 10 messages correspond to the points where the song starts over?

I saw something like this a while back, but I could not reliably reproduce it. The song would play for maybe 4 seconds, start over, play for maybe 8 seconds, start over, play for 12 seconds, etc.

I have logged a bug on this issue.

Do you have a link to the song that exhibits this behavior? If it's not an active, public url can you PM me a way download the file?

Thanks,
