Resuming playback across multiple files

The headphone jack on my beloved Clip+ broke, so I thought I would get the new hardware revision. Unfortunately there are some things I’m not crazy about, but I’ve managed to adjust to most of them (though the slow fast-forwarding gets pretty mind numbing after a while). The one that is driving me crazy, though, is the seeming inability to resume playback across multiple files.

On the Clip+ you could pause one podcast, listen to another, and then go back to the other and continue where you left off. I’ve seen some people say that the Sport does have a resume function, but I guess you can’t do this? Any chance this functionality will be reinstated in a future firmware update?
