Starts playing all by itself

This problem has been happening frequently for the last week or two on my Nexus 4, and it's still happening after this morning's update and a reboot.

I play a podcast, then pause. Then I go about my other businesses, for example reading email. All of a sudden Doggcatcher starts playing the next thing in my list. My notifications include one from Doggcatcher saying "Error playing episode - java.lan.." (screen is too narrow to show the whole message).

That error message is wrong for two reasons : there is nothing wrong with the file (I can go back and resume it, and it plays fine), and I was not playing the file (I was checking email or whatever).

It's particularly annoying when the phone is charging on my bedside table and starts playing all by itself in the middle of the night. I have taken to shutting the phone off completely at night.

Can you please send us a log

Can you please send us a log file (in the DC menu) right after this happens. We should be able to tell from that what's going on.

Thanks for posting.

OK

OK, I just sent one, inadvertently from my work email address. The problem happened since the last time I stopped the program, so I expect it's in there.

Log

I see that the system log I sent doesn't go back to the most recent incident (Fri, 15 Nov 2013 07:29:46). I'll send you another one if I catch it happening again. I often don't notice right away, because the thing is merrily playing at low volume in my pocket, and I'm oblivious.
