On a 1st Gen Shuffle (I know.. it's old. But like me, my wife loves it)...
After using Gtkpod 2.0.2 to load music, the ipod's shuffle-play does not work.
However, if I select a few songs in gtkpod and tell it to "skip songs in shuffle", then ONLY those
those songs actually shuffle. So the logic is backwards for what "skip when shuffling" actually sets.
