GPS signal lost when playing DoggCatcher podcasts

Hello,

While driving several days ago, I noticed that Google Navigation lost the GPS signal if DoggCatcher was playing a podcast. I was able to consistently reproduce the issue: launch DoggCatcher, and the GPS signal was lost. Quit DoggCatcher, and the GPS signal was re-acquired.

As a test, I played an MP3 using my music app while Google Navigation was running, and the GPS signal was not lost.

Has anyone else experienced this? I did find one other thread reporting a similar issue:

Phone: HTC Evo 4G
Carrier: Sprint
DoggCatcher: 1.2.2191
Android: v2.2, not rooted
