List as Shuffled
List songs on the playback screen in the order they will be played.
will prevent this delay. I can't test it, though, since I only have
like 100 songs from my 10 CD's in my library, so I don't see a delay
with it set...
You might also get better performance with "Random" shuffle (for "Play
mode") than with "Intelligent" shuffle. I'd try first with Intelligent,
then change it if it's still too slow.
