Hi guys,

I was wondering if anyone else out there has noticed a small glitch with the play/pause button on iTunes, newest version. I just updated it yesterday and today I noticed that whenever I press play, it sort of freezes until I move the cursor off of the 'play' button. It's very annoying because I'm trying to transcribe a lecture and am constantly pressing play/pause and this freakin thing keeps freezing for a second before playing/pausing.

Is there anyway that I can go back to the old version? I don't have an iPod video so I really don't need this new version.

Thanks all!

I don't think it does this for me, though.... I did notice that if I flick the mouse hard right after I click it, there's a pause. But it's not so much that one must move the mouse off. Actually if you leave the mouse still, it does it right away. It's just a rapid jerk of the mouse right after clicking. No idea why it does that....
