Seeking is `funny'

Problem:
I have noticed that if you have your keyboard-repeat-rate set too high, and keep [RightArrow] depressed, Foobar2000 will skip to the start of the song over and over again. It seems the input buffer gets overloaded or something...
This is only tested with MP3 files. I do not know if it is limited to MP3s.
I use Windows XP and a Logitech cordless keyboard.

Workaround:
Turning down the repeat-rate in Windows `fixes' this problem.

Ubiquitous feature requests:
Previous Track
*nix version (I can always hope ;-)
Support for double-byte characters (for example Russian or Japanese characters) that a normal english Windows does not (cannot) work properly with. I can see how this goes against your basic philosophy of `lean, mean, functional' though.

Praise:
Thank you *so* much for creating one of the best and most promising music players ever! After 30 minutes, WinAmp is *gone*.

It doesn't work already you mean? I tought one of foobar2000's major features was that it only use doublebyte characters a.k.a. Unicode. Windows NT and up use unicode strings internally so I do not understand which versions are affected by this - don't support unicode but can run foobar2000?

I can confirm that the seeking messes up on other formats such as FLAC and OGG. My key-refreshrate is set to the fastest possible in windows.

Hm... it must be my titles that are fukd then... If I understand it correctly, it's files created on a Japanese version of Windows.
This is probably OT, but this is what it looks like:

Any suggestions on how to fix it?

what file format would that be ? looks like mp3+id3v1 to me, which is incapable of storing international characters at all.
