Seems to. Thanks!

*hits head with desk*

Of course, silly me. Still not used to the powerful connectivity for
debugging. I can't get my SD reader to work on my Linux laptop, so I
borrowed an XP system to fsck the SD card.

No more 5 minute hangs, thanks. However, the general response from the
Media Player is a little slow, but I suspect that could be still due
my duplicate MP3 list. Media Player is still reporting 838 music clips
(there may be a few non-MP3 clips as well).

Here's the interesting bit:

# strings .meta_storage | grep media | wc -l

The .meta_storage file has about the right number of entries as I have
MP3s. How do I get rid of Media player's 'Now Playing' playlist?
