Foobar2000 Mobile not working in Android11/Android R beta

The problem is in the title: my Foobar2000 installation on a Pixel 3XL stopped working (playing files) after I installed the first public beta of Android 11. The error message notes that whatever media file I select is already in use. Have others experienced this problem?

My guess is that the problem arises from Android's fiddling with file permissions, but I know nil of the guts of nor Andoid nor Foobar2000.

Thanks for reporting.
Apparently Linux flock() function is broken (deliberately removed?) on Android 11. Workaround has been added for v1.2.6 beta.

Version 1.2.6 available in APK downloads and soon on Google Play beta.

Although it is working slightly better on the official Android 11 release, Foobar2000 still conks out after five or six tracks (or, say, 30 minutes). This happens both with the latest 1.2.8 on one Pixel 3XL and with 1.2.7 on a different Pixel 3XL (the two phones being on different carriers). On one phone, at least, the soon-to-disappear Google Play Music functions as it always had.

I've also been running into this issue on my Pixel 4a. After updating to Android 11 Foobar2000 will randomly stop playing tracks after a period of time. The console log doesn't seem to show anything when it happens and I have to hard kill the app to get it working again.
