Here's the output from your script:

./numfiles.sh: ./numfiles.sh: 24: cannot create : Directory nonexistent
./numfiles.sh: ./numfiles.sh: 24: cannot create : Directory nonexistent
      1 24
      7 MP3
   1325 _notype
      1 m4a
    410 mp3

I reconfirmed last night that Media Player is taking 5+ minutes to
start up. The GUI kept on telling me it was not responding and did I
want to kill it. I didn't, and eventually the Player behaved as

The exact symlink I crated was:

ln -s /media/mmc2 /home/user/MyDocs/Music (where mmc2 is my 2GB card of MP3s)

I *suspect* this is why each track was showing up twice in the Media Player.

This sym link was not present for last night's test, and the following
test I did today:

1. Powered off the unit, removed and reinserted the 2GB SD card from
the internal slot (will the N800 then know it has been reinserted?)

2. Powered on the unit, immediately run Media Player while the crawler
was running. Unit reset.

3. Powered it up again and let it run for a while so the crawler would
finish. Media player reports (empty)

4. Bounced metalayer-crawler0, waited for it to complete. Media player
is still empty.

Is there a file that the crawler generates that I can look at? I'll
install fsck on the unit. It is a shame there is no strace so I could
find out what the Media Player is doing.
